I've had bruxism and restless legs my entire life. Celexa and Wellbutrin made them much worse. At first my first pdoc prescribed Klonopin at 1mg at night for this. It worked well.

When I got my 2nd pdoc he was concerned that I was using Klonopin for only bruxism and restless legs. He suggested that I switch to Neurontin. Since I've worked up to 600mg of Neurontin at night I have no bruxism or restless legs and my sleep is better than when I was on Klonopin.

Also, Neurontin seems to provide some sort of background mood stability that adds to the effects of the Celexa and the Wellbutrin.

A mouth guard would not work for me. My problem was that the jaw muscles would be aching so bad that I could not chew. I would have chewed on a mouth guard and I would have found it difficult to sleep with one in my mouth.
