Mouth guards aren't intended to stop grinding. They are to help get some pressure of teeth and protect them from damage. Talk to a dentist and they will help get the right guard for you.

If you really can't get on with a nightguard then you might consider botox injections to your masseter muscles. But bear in mind that botox treatment is considerably more expensive that using nightguards.
