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
5 Replies RSS
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...

Clonidine Induced Insomnia?
28 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...

CLONIDINE
5 Replies RSS
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...

clonidine, Blood Pressure
2 Replies RSS
I have been on clonidine now for approx 10 months, for high blood pressure. The doctors had tried several other medications but I had so many reactions and issues we decided that the clonidine patch would work best and it has. Yes there is some fatigue and some up and down numbers but in general I have done well. MY BP was all stress related , no non medical reason. So in the past couple of months have been able to alleviate most of the stress (refinance) and I started 500mg magnesium daily and within a month my BP is getting lower and lower and lower. I was wearing 4mg of clonidine and taking (2) 1mg pills during the day as needed. Now I am down to only 2mg a day and still my BP is staying below 115/64 which is vampire state for me. (my numbers were up in the 180/100 range) soooooooooo...

clonidine 0.1mg different?
1 Reply RSS
Are the Clonidine U-135 pill the same as the Clonidine R-127?? I got them from two different doctors and I wasn't sure if they were the same. They have a different taste. The u-135 are white ovals and are tasteless and the round orange R-127 have a horrible taste. ## Yes, they have just been manufactured by different companies, in this case Unichem Pharmaceuticals and Actavis respectively. The taste can just vary, depending on the inactive ingredients they choose to use in them. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, hypotension, mood changes, tiredness and irritability. Is there anything else I can help with?

How long after taking Clonidine does it start to take effect?
10 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 ...

White Round Pill With Novo On One Side

i have a white round pill that say's novo only on one side and its not a capsul it's chalky and im wondering what this is and what it is used for. ## Hi junior, I'm pretty certain that I located a match to the pill you are describing. This "chalky" white round pill is engraved with: no|vo on scored side and 0.1 on unscored side. The pill is identified as Novo-Clonidine (0.1 mg) Clonidine has been prescribed historically as an antihypertensive drug, but has found new uses, including treatment of some types of neuropathic pain, opioid detoxification, sleep hyperhidrosis, anaesthetic use, and off-label, to counter the side effects of stimulant medications such as methylphenidate or amphetamine. It is becoming a more accepted treatment for insomnia, as well as for relief...

clonidine 0. 2 mg

I have recently been put on this drug for sleeping and well its not working at all. I have been taking one at night before bedtime which is what I was told but is it safe to take 2 since im not getting any rest with the 1? ## Also I failed to mention in last comment they are 0.2 mg ## I would recommend trying 1 1/2 first take it no more than 15 mins before bed it works fast. But if u take it 1hour or 30 mins before bed you can kind of simulate yourself into it not working then it loses its effect. Once the groggy effect wears off before your in bed most likely you will not fall asleep well. ## I would also call your doctor to let he/she know it's not working because if you increase your dose without say so to the doctor they will not be happy and you will run out of meds early. If t...
