Could be: Clonidine lowers blood pressure, slows heart rate, and decreases breathing, so overdose can be potentially fatal. All overdoses of any medications should be evaluated by a medical professional, and if the overdose was taken on purpose, also by a mental health professional. Overdoses may require treatment in the er to pump the stomach or to reverse effects of meds already absorbed.
