Hi, since i have been on venlafaxine (I have posted here before re other side effects etc.) I have developed two nervous habits that I didn't have before ie. obssession with lightly scratching scalp although it doesn't itch and not exactly tearing my hair out but running fingers quite roughly through hair to remove any loose/fallen hair. Also, I have developed a small chewing motion which I keep finding myself doing, my dentist asked me if I grind my teeth during sleep which as far as I know I don't, now wondering if he can see some effect on the teeth from this chewing habit. I believe that venlafaxine is used for anxiety as well as depression so I am a bit baffled by my newly aquired bad habits! Has anyone experienced anything similar?
