How many clonidine pills would be considered an overdose

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. We cannot administer CPR or any type of life-saving measure over the Internet. I wish we could, but it just isn't possible. And with this post, the dosage wasn't included, so there's no way an...

medications that cause stroke & uncontrolled b.p.
1 Reply RSS
My father died by stroke & my mother in law also died by stroke. I want to know is there any liquid/medicine/tablets in the indian market that have been known to cause uncontrollable blood pressure, or are responsible for stroke? I am researching the reason for their death. Please help me... thank you ## I'm so sorry to read your story. I am 38 years old and had 3 massive strokes in December 2016! My strokes were a result of being over medicated with blood pressure medicine! I was taking clonidine .2 mg. You would think BP meds would keep a person's BP lower but mine caused massive strokes! Any BP med can do that! They switched me to lisunopril 10 MG and 2 weeks later I had a 4th stroke... medicine can and does cause strokes!

clonidine 0. 2 mg
7 Replies RSS
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...

Clonidine Induced Insomnia?
34 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 does it take to withdrawal from clonidine 2 mg? I am here for answers because my Doctor refuses to help me
17 Replies RSS
Hi I am wondering how long it will take me to get over the major withdrawals from the Clonidine. I have been taking it since my nervous beak down. I have been begging for my Doctor to wean me off of it within the 1st few weeks after starting it. It says on the paperwork that I can't just stop. I used to be on .18 mgs, then I made it less which is .8 total per day. Now the Doc says I will NOT ever be taken off of it. This Clonidine makes me feel like total crap & I want to be off of it 100% as I will be helping victims and their family members get all the right answers, which they deserve. I am NOT as depressed as I was & the only reason why, is because I know I am doing the right thing to help with my heart. My grandpa passed Feb 1999, grandma March 7th 1999 from a broken he...

round peach pill with R 128 & oval white pill with U 136
1 Reply RSS
The oval white pill imprinted with U 136 as well as the round peach pill imprinted R 128 are both 0.2 mg clonidine! I am a recovering addict who's suffered from the disease of addiction. I was for years chasing my next high. My doctor gave me these to help with withdrawal and sleeping. They do not make you feel high as they're non narcotic! They do however put you to sleep. Originally they are indicated for high blood pressure and drug withdrawal. ## Clonidine can also be used for treating anxiety, ADHD and several other medications. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, sedation, drowsiness, dry mouth, and headache. I have not taken it, but I've heard it works miracles for high blood pressure. Is there anything else I can help with?

clonidine how long until drowsiness subsides?
1 Reply RSS
hello, i am on 100mcg's of clonidine twice a day (morning and night) for anxiety and have been having a really hard time with the induced drowsiness. i was wondering if anyone else experienced this and how long it takes your body to get used to it to the point that i'm not falling asleep in the middle of the day. thank you ## How long have you been taking it? According to the FDA side effects are usually transient and tend to go away after about 4 to 5 weeks, once your body gets used to the medication. Other side effects may include nausea, dizziness, headache, and sedation. Are you on any other medications? How are you feeling, now? Has there been any change?
