What Is Clonidine Prescribed For
Hello I'm prescribed clonidine .01mg for bp and was wondering if any nasty drug interactions happen with Suboxone for withdrawal. Beside BP drop.
Can the hypertensive clonidine (0.1 mg.) be prescribed on a one time basis to decrease/handle performance stress prior to a public speaking event?
Never heard that...: Choice of drug for performance anxiety. I have heard of Inderal for this purpose, but especially if you will do this more than once or very rarely, you might consider some psychotherapy. You can learn a strategy for managing this that can help for more than a one night stand. Talk with your doctor for ideas. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My son was prescribed clonidine .5mg.2day he was taken off clonidine & put on guanfacine 1mg. Can he take guanfacine 2nite after taking clonidine a.M.?
Probably: I suspect your son was on 0.05 mg of Clonidine 2x a day; that's about the same as 1 mg of guanfacine. They're in the same family of medications, working on the same system. Talk with his doctor, but switching over that dose should not cause a problem, especially since Guanfacine typically has fewer side effects. The biggest concern is a potential spike in BP from stopping Clonidine too fast. ...Read more

Not quite sure of ?: Withdrawal peaks at 3 to 5 days post narcotic withdrawal and decreases after day 7. If going back onto narcotics, this is standard for withdrawal FAILURE. detox and other supervised withdrawal is easier and more reliable. Furthermore, interventions to identify and change underlying pattern of addiction is a good idea. ...Read more
I was prescribed clonidine for my hot flashes knowing that my heart pressure is normal in general . But I do have a constant rapid heart beat.
Clarification : Are you saying you have a rapid heart beat since you started the clonidine? If this is the case, tachycardia, or fast heart rate is a side effect.. You may want to talk with doc about switching to something else? Or maybe you were saying that you have a rapid heart rate and doctor was trying to treat that? Either way, best to talk to doctor and make sure it's the right agent for you. ...Read more
Can a clonidine 0.1 mg tablet be prescribed prior to a patient's medical office visit in order to better manage his/her true white coat hypertension?
Physiology: It's normal physiology for BP to rise as part of our "fight or flight" response. This is normal, healthy, and desirable. BP medicines won't prevent it. There's no reason to take extra medicine before a doctor visit to "fool" the BP cuff. Just measure your BP at home and bring in a diary of bps. If you're concerned, bring your device in and compare results with the doctor's simultaneously. ...Read more
