Clonidine, as a second line agent, directly reduces the hormones epinephrine and cortisol in the brain making it particularly useful for hypertension?

Clonidine, as a second line agent, directly reduces the hormones epinephrine and cortisol in the brain making it particularly useful for hypertension?

Less Norepinephrine: There have been two mechanisms proposed for the blood pressure lowering effect of Clonidine in the brain: stimulation of alpha-2 receptors reduce release of norepinephrine from the brain with resultant peripheral vascular dilation due to reduced sympathetic tone. The second is reduced sympathetic tone due to stimulation of the imidazoline receptors in the brain. BP and heart rate are reduced. ...Read more
