Clonidine: Clonidine has lots of side effects and those aren't unusual and it doesn't mean you had decreased cerebral blood flow. Discuss with your Doc, there are lots of BP choices.

If you are thinking of reduced blood pressure leading to decreased cerebral perfusion, you would have been in the hospital in shock. That kind of decrease in blood to your brain results in altered level of consciousness or other obvious signs. So not to worry.
