Did you get the Flexaril (Cyclobenzprine) Over the counter? What does it do? How does it help with the teeth thing?

> > OHHHHH YEAH! have I had that! The yawning goes away at least for me! The jaw thing is another story, I have had tense jaw AND grinding my teeth horribly in my sleep. That has not gone away, and still is bad enough to sound like I am crunching up teeth in my sleep. It get's worse when I am Anxious as well. I am going in for surgery on Friday and the past 2 nights I have been grinding like crazy. This happened before the Effexor so not really a big deal. But I would still like some relief. let me know if you find something that works for you.

Has anyone had this symptom and does it go away (the yawning too)?
> I have noticed a similar effect. I have been on Effexor for 8 days now, with very few side effects, ie; some sleepiness the first couple of days, and then some jitteriness/spaced out feelings. But for the most part, I feel good. I do clench my teeth though. This was something I did before the Effexor, but it seems a little more intense now. I am used to taking Flexaril (Cyclobenzprine) for clenching at night and wearing a night guard. I actually work in the dental field, and highly recommend you try to remedy the clenching/grinding to avoid nasty tooth and gum problems, neck problems, etc. But anyway, when I take the Flexaril at night I don't clench nearly as bad and feel better rested the next day. I checked first to make sure they were ok to take at the same time. I also yawn a lot.....but I'm not really too bothered by it, and maybe it will subside. Just my 2 cents.
