how long clonidine withdrawals last cold turkey?
20 Replies RSS
Omg I'm f***n miserable! I didn't think I would have withdrawals this bad after only a month and a half of taking thus drug everyday. It's literally comparable to a milder xanax withdrawal. Yes, I did abuse it. I would take 3 0.1 mgs 2-3 times a day. Tolerance goes up extra quick with this drug. I have none left and I'm on my 3rd day of feeling like s***. I'm on a hundred and 30 milligrams of methadone every day, and it's not even taking care of me in the morning times because of how s***ty I feel. Woah good lord I f***d up royally lol my tolerance for things is always extra high because of how long I've done drugs. I refuse to tell my clinic and I just need some help because I can't find any info about how long it stays in the body when you stop it cold ...

Clonidine Induced Insomnia?
29 Replies RSS
Been on this med for quite a while (3+ yrs) for physical symptoms of anxiety. Since day one it still hits me like a ton of bricks and causes severe drowsiness about an hour after taking it. When taken at bedtime it will put me out no problem. BUT, after 3-4 hours, I wake up and have trouble sleeping for the rest of the night. Wondering if anyone else has this similar problem with waking up after a few hours of sleep. It's guaranteed to K.O. me but then wake me right back up after a little while. ## Although Clonidine's side effects do not list insomnia as a possible side effect, there are certainly more than a handful of adverse reactions that could inevitably cause insomnia. This drug may cause lightheadedness, dry mouth, tiredness, weakness, headache, nervousness, decreased se...

can clonidine lose its ability to lower blood pressure over time
1 Reply RSS
I've been on the clonidine 0.2mg transdermal for almost a year with very good results. For about 2 wks now my bp has been around 150/90. Could the clonidine be losing effect on my bp? Before starting clonidine my bp was 200/110 and hr was 140 for weeks. Lisinopril 40mg did nothing but give me severe nausea and diarrhea. ## Hello, Buffy! How are you? Yes, your body will eventually get used to anything that you ingest for a long period of time and it will no longer be as effective. Sometimes it takes years for some people, but for others it may take only a few months. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and insomnia. Have you informed your doctor?

clonidine severe allergic reaction
1 Reply RSS
I was prescribed clonidine weekly patches to help with hot flashes. Worked great for hot flashes; continued with patches, other symptoms began and I thought they were peri-menopausal. After several months my skin began to itch, shortly after itch then I developed a rash; wearing patch became intolerable. I just stopped wearing the patch. But then those hot flashes were unbearable and went back to Dr. requesting the medication in pill form. Dr. obliged, and I thought I was a happy camper. But. . . I had a severe allergic reaction. Eyes swollen, head and body aches, drowsy, just felt really weird. Looked on internet and found that I had been having numerous severe side effects for months. My question is how long will it take for the symptoms to subside. ## I am very sorry about what happe...

How long can Clonidine remain in my body?
3 Replies RSS
I was prescribed .01mg of Clonidine for anxiety and impulse control. At no time did my doctor check my blood pressure or warn me that this medication is often used to significantly lower blood pressure. This is a problem for me since my blood pressure has always been dangerously low. I was told by a different doctor to stop it immediately since I have been passing out and always dizzy to the point where I can rarely see straight. So I stopped it on January 22, 2016 and I'm still having trouble. My question is simply, how long should it take for the Clonidine to get completely out of my body? I'm 23, 5 foot 6 and weigh 135lbs. I have been taking it for a little over 6 months. Any response would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. ## Hello, Niki! How are you? After 6 months, it could ...

Can I Mix Clonidine Gabapintin

Have been using gabapintin 1200mg-2000mg aday for oxcycodone withdrawals its helping but im afraid of becoming addicted to it, want to start weaning off and try clonidine... On day 4 will this be dangerous ## To answer your first question, I did find that there are (moderately unsafe) interactions between Clonidine and Gabapentin (so it wouldn't be wise to take a full dose of each one together). Information that I've gathered on this states the following: "MONITOR: Central nervous system- and/or respiratory-depressant effects may be additively or synergistically increased in patients taking multiple drugs that cause these effects, especially in elderly or debilitated patients. MANAGEMENT: During concomitant use of these drugs, patients should be monitored for potentially exc...

what all can it be used for other than blood presure treatment ## This is sometimes used for migraine headaches as well. ## Occasionally some types of after surgery discomfort from mild procedures, on top of what nenene already stated. I have also heard some people have been given it by their docs to help with withdrawal from other meds, but this is a total off label use, so I don't know much about it. ## my son uses it for his Torettes it helps with his tics, but makes him very tired. ## Withdrawal off klonopin which can be worse than opiates. I was in combat 25 years special unit. On and off klonipin and ativan 25 years. This last wd almost killed me. Doc started replacement with slow wd and clonidine. I have complex back and neck injuries. Also relived by clonidine taking place o...
