Bottom line -- if you're prone to grinding or clenching your teeth at night without Lex, you'll likely notice jaw clenching as a side effect. As others have said here, it should pass. Try to relax and stretch the surrounding muscle groups (neck and shoulders). A mouth guard is a GREAT idea should the clenching linger too long for you or become uncomfortable.

My clenching never subsided while on Lex (Lex > 2 years, Celexa before that). I've simply tried to make myself more aware of it and relax my mouth as much as possible. It also tends to make my mouth really dry, so I keep a sippee cup nearby at night for hydration. I've also used the oral lubricants but didn't care for those as much.
I had some jaw clenching too, when I was on lexapro. It wasnt that bad but I caught myself doing it quite a bit.
