Teeth grinding (also known as bruxism or jaw clenching) is a fairly common effect mostly associated with stimulants and stimulating psychedelics. It can be described as a compulsive and often uncontrollable urge to grind one's teeth. In extreme cases, this can result in painful damage to one's tongue, teeth and inner cheek.

The most effective methods for quickly alleviating uncomfortable bruxism include using chewing gum or a baby's pacifier (also called a dummy) to occupy one's jaws without causing damage. Magnesium (preferably glycinate) is also very effective at alleviating bruxism when it is taken at a dosage of 200mg once 6 hours before and again at 1-3 hours before ingesting a stimulant such as MDMA or amphetamine.[1]
