Teeth grinding on Prozac?

Posted by haddsl on November 18, 2005, at 16:11:16

My Fiance has noticed that when I am on Prozac (or any other meds in the category) I grind my teeth through the night. Has anyone had that? What do you do to stop that?

Had a little bit of it on Zoloft. Think I may have caused two teeth cracks, one requiring a crown, as a result.

You can get a tooth guard made. I didn't.

I have tried a tooth guard but, I grind so bad in my sleep, that my jaw still hurts... I think I need something else. If there is anything (keeping fingers crossed)

Try an NTI device. It's what I have and it works. It just goes over your front two teeth to keep your jaw apart except for the two front teeth. It's really worked for me

Some people here take Klonopin to help with the teeth grinding thing. I've also read that Buspar can help.

I don't grind but clench my jaw and my Doctor put me on valium at bedtime for this. Mine is from Stress and anxiety. My dentist wanted me to get a night guard because it has damaged a few of my teeth from the pressure. But I have yet to do that.
