Yes, a side effect of Seroquel is bruxism (grinding of the teeth), you can wear a dental piece to solve the problem, they are sold at sport stores, or you can have one made by a dentist.

My dentist just told me recently that bruxism is very common amongst his patients. You don't have to be on medication to have it!

Ok you don´t, but if you take Seroquel, as the list of side effects (potential) that I provided from this site states that; Uncommon (0.1% to 1%): bruxism.

Oh, I totally agree with you, Masso. I used to take antidepressants, been off all of them before my last visit, surprised to hear from him that bruxism is common amongst people whether they take ADs or similar meds, or not!

BTW, mouth guard per my dentist = $275!. Local pharmacy mouth guard = $18.
Huge diff!

I totally agree with masso.
My dad takes Seroquel for Parkinson's disease.
Through out the day and especially at night he grinds his teeth.
He too has to where a pharmacy mouth guard.
Unfortunately, he can only where it at night due to it's bulkiness. It's very hard to get use to.
Does however make a huge difference.
I would definitely recommend using one at least at night time.
