In reply to does anyone grind their teeth like me???, posted by eighteenminutes on October 8, 2004, at 16:17:30
> I have been noticing that I grind my teeth adn feel super tense lately...I have come to realize that after two years of effexor xr it has either stopped working or i would need to up my dose...but I already hate thinking abou the withdrawl and think that upping the dose will just make that worse. Does anyone else get tension in their jaw and terrible teeth grinding at night or am I cursed?
I've been taking 150 mg of Effexor XR on and off for the past 2 years. I've noticed every time that I start taking it, my jaw and neck are sore and my ears pop from grinding my teeth at night. So, you're not alone. I'm always very tense and wired the first few days that I take it, but it will eventually go away. I also suffer from alot of muscle weakness as a beginning side effect, so exercise is out of the question. The first few weeks are always the most difficult, but the results are worth it.
