Severe amphethamine-induced bruxism: treatment with botulinum toxin.

Author information

Department of Neurology, Singapore General Hospital, Singapore.


While chewing and grinding movements have been observed in amphetamine addicts, recognition and management of this problem have rarely been highlighted. Botulinum toxin (BTX) has previously been demonstrated to be effective for bruxism associated with movement disorders, such as cranial-cervical dystonia. However, there is little information on its use in tardive bruxism. Here we report an amphetamine addict who presented with medically intractable bruxism, and discuss its pathophysiology and successful treatment with BTX.
