Comments from related studies:
From this study (4 months ago):
Added estradiol taken orally 5.5 weeks ago*, and gingival hyperplasia began 4 weeks ago. All other meds/vits had been ongoing for a long time before that.
Previously, estradiol was taken vaginally and is "non-systemic", therefore.
From this study (5 months ago):
I have been on this drug for 2 years now at least straight with the add-back therapy (Estrace 1MG and Apo-Medroxy 2.5 MG) that is supposed to protect me from osteoporosis allowing me to stay on the drug lupron longer then a year as per a new study my gynecologist had recommended for me. This summer have found out I now have a deteriorated disk in my back,lost a tooth and now just today (Dec. 29, 2014) have a tooth that is after cracking for no reason!!!! I ate nothing hard! My bone density is showing a risk for osteoporosis and I am only 40! On the positive side it has reduced my pain so I have a quality of life instead of pain in my abdomen 24/7 but now I have permanent damage to my back and don't have the money to repair my tooth so could have to get another pulled, to add to it all!It is my jaw teeth so now how will i eat! More studies have to go into this drug!
Hyperacusis woman on Jan, 1, 2015:
If you are discussing temazepam, then, yes, temazepam is known to cause bruxism during sleep. I too had a cracked tooth because of temazepam. I had to get a post and a cap (about $5,000) to replace a virgin tooth (i.e., no previous damage). If you use temazepam, I urge you to get a mouth guard made by a dentist. Regarding the back, I had an MRI showing two damaged back vertebrae after being on temazepam for three years. I don't know if temazepam played a role. I'm a woman in a profession who is in her mid-to-late 40s and who was physically fit and active. I was on temazepam for 4 years total. I don't recommend the drug, as it made me depressed and irritable. (I have no history of psych problems; I am cursed with hyperacusis.)
