Hi Glenn. I had this side effect with Concerta. In fact, it took me a while to realize that when my dosage was titered upward, the onset of frequent headaches was due to an increase in jaw clenching and/or teeth grinding.
I’ve trained myself to be more aware of my jaw position (and to maintain a “resting” position of teeth apart). It’s all I was able to do, but it helped a lot. I would also strongly recommend buying a mouth guard for nighttime (available from drugstores). It will help you with the awareness factor and prevent that awful morning soreness.
Hope this helps a little.REPORT ABUSE
