Discussions that mention zoloft

TMJ Disorder -TemporoMandibular Joint board

I was having terrible jaw clenching contributing to steadily worsening jaw problems. I recently found out that Paxil, which I was on for anxiety, CAUSES jaw clenching! I stopped taking it three days ago and already my clenching is lessened and my jaw is starting to improve.

I'm sure this is old news to a lot of you but I wanted to mention it in case there was someone else here like me who didn't know that drugs like paxil can cause clenching. Other similar drugs like prozac and zoloft have the same side effect.

My doctor knew I had TMJ problems and put me on paxil without telling me about this common side effect. :(
