At the time it started I was on Zoloft and it caused me to go manic. but Im still manic and still doing it so I think its the mania. Now I'm only on ambilify I go back to pdoc thursday and I'm insisting they change my meds because of so many side effects. Also the sleeping pills and anxiety meds I quit completely because of so many side effects and they wherent working anyway.

I was told I grind my teeth when I'm asleep and I don't remember why, I always did since I was a kid.  I don't have tardive dyskinesia.
