Teeth Grinding

Posted by Julie on January 12, 2000, at 21:56:22

I take Effexor (225mg XR) which I know can cause bruxism (teeth grinding). Though I hadn't noticed myself grinding, I recently found that my front teeth were loose and my jaw was making popping noises. So I went to the dentist. He said (surprise!) I grind my teeth, and need a mouth guard and all sorts of other expensive realignment stuff, to the tune of 2,000 dollars. Now, I don't make much money, and am not sure I trust this particular dentist's integrity. I'd rather figure out ways to stop grinding without spending a zillion dollars on it. So: medication-taking (or not) grinders out there: do y'all have any helpful anti-grinding tips? Thanks.
