Can take together.: The two medicines work by different medications, so there shd be no problem taking them together. Clonidine, in particular, is "centrally acting" & is supposed to stabilize ur BP, not cause low BP. However, that being said, if u take the 2 together & then start feeling bad, take ur BP right away & write it down. If ur BP drops precipitously 2-3 hrs after taking meds consistently, TTYD abt the prob
