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.

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.

I have been taking Clonidine for two weeks now and my BP has been controlled at 135/80, but the last two days my BP has been checking 170/95 160/90 and then it checked back to 135/78. Has anyone experienced anything like this? ## What time of day are you checking it? Has there been anything you've done differently those days, before checking it?

how long does it take to withdrawls from clonidine 2 mg! I am here for answers because my Doctor refuses to help me
14 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...
