My date of birth is 2/3/45 accidentally took my friends 0.1 mg Clonidine. I do not have hypertension and take no meds except Xanax (alprazolam) 0.5 mg what to do?

Rebound hypertension: occurs with clonidine withdrawal. You are unlikely to have this having taken a single dose. Low blood pressure, however, can lead to orthostatic syncope. Do not arise from a reclining position without remaining seated for a few minutes to reduce the risk of this. The clonidine will wear off after 12 hours at most. Do not take Viagra (sildenafil) or nitrates for the next 12 hours. ...Read more

Could drug interactions with my meds being prescribed be really messing me up clonadine, atenelol,amlodopine,xanex,suboxone,omerperazole.. Help me pls?

Yes, indeed!: Did one physician prescribe all of these? If so - you need to consider another provider. If not, you need always to inform any one of them about other drugs you take. All have some risk with just about all of the others, but the worst is between Xanax (alprazolam) and Suboxone. Respiratory distress is possible even coma or death - so call your doctor(s) ASAP or go to ER or a good pharmacist w/ the bottles. ...Read more
