When I was in rehab @ first I was on so many meds that in group therapy i was pratically drewling without noticing it so i really get u ... they had me up there with the meds @ first, a friend would always signal me. I am 41 bipolar, ocd, among other conditions, been clean for 8 years, and after all i have been through I really have reached a point in my life that I really could´nt care less of what other people think of me cause they are not capable of understanding what we are dealing with day in day out ... they r so narrow minded and ignorant ... it should´nt get to you... I know it´s annoying ..hey but that´s just the way it is for know it´s not permanent I take so many meds and luckily have no side effects and have my ups and downs.
with regards to pristiq (desvenlafaxine succinate) I looked up the side effects and jaw clenching is not listed.
Now I was thinking are you on a high dosage and r u taking any other medications?
this is mainly because of the interactions that may occur.
