Venlafaxine and Jaw clenching (TMJ)

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hello everyone,

i have posted on here before about Ven causing jaw clenching, tensing or whatever you want to call it. A few of you said yes you do suffer with this as a side effect.

My question today is, those who suffer - does it affect your ears in anyway?

It feels like i have a slight ear infection but i know for sure that i don't (ENT) consultant has checked me out. I can feel my upper jaw tensing but im not stressed - its like the feeling that i constantly smiling and my jaw aches... strange one i know but any advice would be appreciated! im only on a very low dose just 37.5 tab a day x
