In reply to Med to fight bruxism?, posted by sid on January 1, 2002, at 10:25:34
Clonazepam (Rivotril) and Buspirone (Buspar) are possible options to "treat" it. Headache esp. in the morning could be of bruxism. When I went off Paxil bruxism stopped.
> I am taking Effexor XR - for 36 days now, and most side effects have subsided. However, the increased bruxism is still there and it is starting to bother me. I get headaches, which I believe are caused by it. And my teeth are not made of steel... I broke a tooth some years ago due to bruxism (non-medication related), so I'd like to avoid it if possible.
> Ideas anyone? Thanks in advance.
> PS: I also yawn and feel very sleepy a few times a day, but it lasts 5-10 minutes and passes. I can live with that side effect, it's no real problem.
