Doctor insights on:
Numerous: Clonidine stimulates? 2 receptors, which causes the heart to beat less forcefully and blood vessels to dilate (increase in diameter), which lowers blood pressure, hence its classification as an anti-hypertensive (though it has many other clinical uses). Side effects include hypotension (too low blood pressure), dry mouth, fatigue, weakness, nausea, constipation and many more.
No: It is for hypertension most of the time that most physicians use.
Yes: Drugstore. Com and walmart. Com will both dispense Clonidine (with a valid prescription authorization) on-line and I've used both and can vouch for them.
Clonidine overdose: An overdose occurs when an excessive / dangerous dose of a drug is used. A Clonidine overdose can cause: " high blood pressure, slow heart rate, fainting, shivering, difficulty breathing, tiredness, sSlurred speech, Cold, pale skin, weakness, constricted pupils, sinus bradycardia (common in child overdose), drowsiness, coma" REF: http://www.

Clonidine: Well to start with death. The dose noted is 1500 times the starting dose. If the dose was meant to be 150 mcg then it still is not right as the med is not made in that size. It comes in 0.1-0.3 mg tablets. This is a blood pressure medication that needs close monitoring because misuse can lead to severe side effects in the patient.
My child have a cold and he takes clonidine at night and I gave him children nightquil is that ok?
May make him: Extra sleepy/ groggy in the morning as well, as both of those medicines will increase sedation. Otherwise the clonidine will help lower the blood pressure spike that most antihistamines, which the Nyquil contains, eventually cause. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.See 1 more doctor answer
