how can i get a clonidine patch to stay on
1 Reply RSS
My son is on a clonidine patch. He sweats a lot and i cant get the patch to stay on. How can i make it stay on? ## Hello, Shella! How are you and your son? It might be better to ask his doctor about switching to the pills, so this will no longer be an issue. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and hypotension. Alternatively, you can ask the doctor or pharmacist if they have any ideas as to what might help.

small orange pill round with p 127
1 Reply RSS
My dr prescribed this pill and told me it's a sleeping pill to help me sleep better and relax but looking it up doesn't say anything about being a sleeping pill. So I'm just confused as to what it could be? ## Is the marking on it P 127 or R 127? A tablet with R 127 on it is manufactured by Actavis and they list it as containing 0.1mg of Clonidine which has many medical uses, including treating high blood pressure, anxiety, ADHD, and sleep disorders. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, and headache. Have you tried taking it, yet?

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...

clonidine - too many pills
2 Replies RSS
I gave my mom 2 clonidine 0.1 mg and she is only supposed to have one every 8 hours. Will she be OK or do I need her to get her to the hospital? ## Hi Marilyn, Sorry to hear about your situation. I realize you posted this back on November 26th and today is December 11th. How is your mom doing now? My assumption is that she may have been fine after the Clonidine wore off - but I do think it's always a good idea to either contact the prescribing doctor, a pharmacist, and/or poison control in the event of an overdose; even if it's acute. These medical personnel could offer recommendations to help mitigate any possible symptoms associated with taking too much. And this might sound corny, but since Clonidine lowers blood pressure, I would imagine that finding ways to keep her heart r...

clonidine - how long does it take to work
1 Reply RSS
I have been having heart palpitations on an off since I started cloindine 1 mg. Should I quit? ## How long have you been taking it and how long do the palpitations last? The FDA does list palpitations as being a possible side effect of this medication and they may continue for 4 to 6 weeks, while your body is adjusting to the medication. In most case, palpitations are harmless, unless they are accompanied by other symptoms, such as dizziness and chest pain, according to the NIH, or if they last for very long periods of time.... but, it never hurts to have your doctor check things out to be sure.

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 Induced Insomnia?
31 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...

2 Replies RSS
Trying oxycodone detox. Want to use clonidine for this. But i am on 25mg of metoporol succ and had heart bypass 3 years ago. Any thoughts on this? ## Hello, Richie! How are you? Taking them both tougher can lower your heart rate and blood pressure, which might be dangerous for some people, so they should only be taken together, if your doctor approves and is monitoring you regularly. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, increased urination, and dehydration. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Thank you for your reply...and you are correct I am on day 12 of oxycodne....and advice from a local pharmacy..I was told not to use the cloidine. For my personal. Detox..clonidine is great to withdraw from oxycodon. Just not for a heart p...

Clonidine withdrawal symptoms

Put on half a .1mg Clonidine to take only once a day and was only taking it for less than 6 days. I forgot to take it and want off the pill. I also take 2.5 Corlanor at night and .5mg Lorazapam as needed. I am so scared and terrified of withdrawal. I was put on med for my Hyper POTS disorder. Will I be ok? So far my blood pressure has been good but I am feeling a lot of anxiety and heart palpitations. ## Hello, Katt! How are you doing? Has there been any change? There shouldn't be any issues after taking it for only 6 days, in theory, but everyone is different. The FDA lists the typical withdrawal effects as possibly including insomnia, nervousness, palpitations, anxiety, and elevated blood pressure. The best thing to do would be to consult your doctor, so they can check things out ...
