Tourette's Syndrome
3 Replies RSS
Has anyone used Respridol for Tourette's Syndrome? My son is almost 9, and may also have ADD. He is not really hyper, and behaves well at school. He was just started on Clonidine, but it hasn't been long enough to tell anything. The doc also mentioned Respridol, so I was just wondering. He also has moderate asthma, under control with Flovent. Thanks! ## Risperdal contains Risperidone, it is a potent atypical antipsychotic, which is approved to treat Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and Schizoaffective disorder. Most other uses are off-label and I have no information on it being used for Tourettes. Have you asked the doctor about it? You can learn more about the medication here: ## I just started using Flovent and was advised to rinse my mouth and gargle after using to avoid getti...

Can Clonidine cause body odor?
2 Replies RSS
Been taking clonidine for 3 months. Wife says my normal smell is different and she doesn't like it. Can it make you smell? ## It isn't a reported side effect, but being logical, you are adding a chemical to your body that normally isn't present any time you take a medication, so it is possible that it could cause some changes to your normal body chemistry. Learn more Clonidine details here. And from the way you're describing it, that's what it sounds like it's done, it's just made some changes to your usual body chemistry, so you smell a little different than usual. That's not an actual odor, or smelling. However, if it really bothers your wife, then you might want to speak to your doctor about trying a different medication. Has she described what it smel...

can you drink alcohol while taking clonidine
4 Replies RSS
Can you drink a couple of beers before you take your clonidine 0.2 mg that night or not take the pill that night ## Hello, Bullet! How are you? It would be best not to skip doses of your medication, without your doctor's approval. Drinking alcohol, while taking it may increase the side effects, so you may experience more nausea, dizziness and drowsiness than usual. It may make each drink affect you as if you'd had 2 and so on. If your doctor approves of your imbibing, then you should make sure that you will not be driving or operating any dangerous machinery. Is there anything else I can help with? ## When I drink it raises my blood pressure what should I do if I have already taken my clodine Y ## Hello, ME, Just mess with your neighbors spouse. That should have nowhere near the...

I was just informed that my family member just took 7 Clonidines. Is this an overdose? Please answer as soon as possible. ## I sincerely hope that this person's family member suffered no ill effects. When it comes to posts like this, it really can't be stressed enough that if you think the life or health of someone is in danger, please contact your nearest emergency treatment facility or take them in to one! While there are always people on sites, such as this one, that will help if we can, there is nothing we can do to help you save a life, if that's what it comes down to.

clonidine for tachycardia but also on suboxone
2 Replies RSS
I was perscribed clonodine for tachycardia but have also been on suboxone for 6 years..which I would love to get off of. After research I see this drug also helps with the withdrawals.. can I use the clonodine to help withdraw from suboxone? Will I withdraw from the clonidine also if I stop taking it? Is it just another drug that I'll be physically addicted to? ## It's really hard to say, since we are all different, so much of it depends on you and your metabolism. But yes, Clonidine has been known to help with withdrawal symptoms according to FDA reports, and yes, you may experience some withdrawal symptoms from it, if you stop it abruptly, however, it depends on how much you were taking and how long you were taking it. What dosage are you taking? ## I just started taking the c...

Clonidine withdrawal
16 Replies RSS
My diabetic and hypertensive mother (age 88) was recently hospitalized for weakness and frequent falling. She has been on clonidine and a new doctor took her off it. She has been having horrible waves of nausea and diarrhea for about a week and a half now. She has to force herself to eat a couple of bites of each meal, and she weighed all of 92 pounds when she went in. Besides the hell she is going through, I am worried about her wasting away. How long does the clonidine withdrawal process last? ## Are you saying they just abruptly took her off of it? Did they replace it with something else? Are they providing supportive therapy? I doubt that the hospital will really let her waste away, if she starts to lose too much weight and isn't holding anything down, they will force nutrients ...

Clonidine Induced Insomnia?
36 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...

How long after taking Clonidine does it start to take effect?
13 Replies RSS
I was prescribed .2mg of Clonidine twice a day to prevent withdrawl while tapering off of 100mcg/hr Fentanyl. I was not informed by my doc that I needed to taper off the Clonodine as well. Stopped taking when took last dose in bottle, & have been having horrible withdrawls from the Clonodine. Went to ER, & doc prescribed .1mg twice daily. Took first two doses & still very shaky, having horrible chills, & unable to sleep. How long will it take for this to calm down? ## Hello, Michelle! How long were you on the Clonidine? I have to wonder if these withdrawal symptoms aren't more due to withdrawing from the Fentanyl, rather than the Clonidine. Short term use of Clonidine shouldn't cause major withdrawal symptoms and the ones you've described are more typical of ...
