1302779 tn?1287405029 hey all just wanted to hear some experience about "jaw clenching" with taking lexapro. Been on it for a month at 15mg and the only real side affect im having is jaw clenching. was wondering if this will be less with time?
1539379 tn?1294332115 HEY i too am on 40 mg of celexa since oct and saw my specialist yesterday and we discussed my problem with the med is jaw clenching! I also suffer with migraines so jaw clenching and migraines not a good mix! I also take 05 mg klonopin with clexa in the morning and I feel the klonopin helps more than the celexa with anxiety. that being said I am slowly weaning off the celexa very slowly and see if the klonopin will be enough. the jaw clenching especially at night is not fun.
Avatar f tn Then I read on this site recently that Lexapro was causing jaw clenching. So there you have it. These are just weird stuff, these meds.
Avatar f tn Does it go away after my body adjust to the medicne. I also get body twitches while i start to fall asleep from the lexapro. The lexapro seems to be helping but I can't stand biting my tongue and clenching my teeth every night. I have an over the counter mouth guard. It is uncomfortable to sleep with but it helps.
Avatar f tn My doctor recenlty made a change and brought me down to 7.5mg due to fatigue and jaw clenching. He also added a small dose on kolonopin .25mg in the evening to assist with the jaw clenching. I was doing o.k until last week when I started to feel very blue and having some crying spells. On Sunday night I then started having a bit of increased anxiety and a couple of small panic attacks.
Avatar f tn And about the jaw clenching -- I was put on Lexapro a couple of years ago and have had this weird ear fullness that started some months ago. I finally saw an ENT, who said it was from jaw clenching. Is this from the Lexapro?
17020225 tn?1455749597 I started taking celexa about 2 weeks ago and have noticed that recently I have been clenching my jaw a lot without realizing it. At night and during the day. I don't even notice I have been doing it until my jaw gets sore and my teeth start to hurt. I didn't have this problem prior to taking celexa. Has anyone else had this happen? Could it be caused by the medication?
Avatar n tn Initially I felt a lot calmer and more easygoing, more positive and it was great! I did have the usual clenching jaw, trouble sleeping, tiredness but I was willing to accept these side effects due to my more positive outlook. Now though and probably going on for a week, I feel worse than before, more irritable, more negative than I was without lexapro. Had anyone else experienced this? What did you do to fix the problem? Do I up my dosage?
Avatar f tn Interesting jaw clenching from Lexapro, I am also on Lexapro. I thought I clenched my jaw because I was stressed and anxious. Perhaps I am dealing with a little of both, the ENT Dr. told me I has tinnitus, but that there is nothing I can do about it, there are some herbal supplements that I can take I guess. Thank You for your reply!
Avatar n tn Tremors throughout the body (very noticeable in the hands), jaw pain (teeth clenching), constant LOUD ringing in ears are the major issues. I won't even begin to mention the many minor issues. PLEASE HELP!!! Raiders77 Male, 44 years old, with no phycological issues (UNTIL NOW!!!).
Avatar n tn Has anyone else experienced a low heart rate while on lexapro. Took imipramine on/off for 20+ years with the only side effect being heartrate in the 90's - then blood pressure started to go up a little. Went off imipramine and doctor put me on lexapro - now have gained a little weight, am tired, clenching jaw at night, blood pressure back down, but pulse is constantly in the 50's which is freaking me out a little. Have been on lexapro for 6 months now - libido gone also....

Avatar m tn I did get pressure in my ears from Lexapro, though -- seemed to be from jaw clenching, one of its listed side effects.

Avatar f tn Thyroid. Argument with Ryan. Jaw clenching.
709686 tn?1277432159 t originally know it was the Lexapro until I read about it on the web is jaw clenching. I kept feeling like my ears were clogged and a pressure in the head. It got really bad when they upped me to 30mg because the Lexapro hasn't been working. I also don't think your doctor's paying attention to all the reported side effects, as muscle tightness is one of the more common ones. Not necessarily in the chest, but somewhere. With me it's usually the calves and toes.
Avatar n tn My thyroid condition appears to be stable (no dose change since starting levoxyl 3 years ago). I loved Wellbutrin - took that for 5 years +, started to have serious jaw clenching and had to stop. Tried Prozac, had extreme nausea that did not let up and some jaw clenching right away also. Stopped that. I've been on lexapro for about 4 years now.
Avatar f tn Who knows? Lexapro is known to cause jaw clenching; I found out when my ears kept feeling stuffed and I finally saw an ENT who told me it was from jaw clenching. So who knows what Zoloft can do to any particular person? On the other hand, after just three days, it isn't causing it anymore, and if you still have it, it's more likely your anxiety is holding on to it -- conditioned thinking is what plagues us anxiety sufferers. Work on this with your CBT person and see if it helps.
358304 tn?1409709492 I have the same issues, my jaw is always sore. I try to catch myself clenching, and stop, but like I said, most of the time, I don't even realize I am doing it. This can cause ear aches, headaches, pain when chewing, it can wreak havoc on your teeth! My jaw gets extremely tired when I chew things like steak or gum. Try to be aware of it, and see if you can notice when you are doing it. Good Luck to you!

750186 tn?1241163574 my jaw... i was clenching my jaw and did not notice for...
Avatar n tn t sleep and teied Trazodone but was so tired all the time I stopped and the withdrawal was brutal. My psych put me on Lexapro and I was tired and having he horrible teeth clenching so he lowered it and added Wellbutrin XL 150 which helps a ton with my energy and switched the Lorazepam to Clonazepam. Now because if the clenching and headaches we have stopped the Lexapro and he gave me Lamictal to take at night. I can't sleep and have been very emotional....depressed and crying a lot.
