jewels Says:


I have been on 0.1 clonidine now for several years. Recently i have been getting very high spikes. My doctor increased me. I was taking 0.1 twice a day. I now take 0.4 split up into 3 times a day. I am now experiencing very loud ringing in the ears / hissing sounds with a numbness feeling in my head. At times it is so bad it debilitates me to where i cannot do anything. Has anyone else experienced anything like this? It is driving me crazy and cannot function like this!

Jewels --

I started taking Clonidine 0.1 mg three months ago for occasional blood pressure spike to 160/105 (I believe I have panic attack or anxiety disorder). Now I am taking taking 0.1 mg twice daily to keep my bp in range (120/80+). Still I will have bp spike once a week and I have to take additional 0.1 mg to bring it down. Dry mouth, ear ringing and low energy are the side effects I've been getting.

Yes, you are right...most people have no clue about smart meters and cell towers and how we are literally being microwaved. Hopefully people will research it and become informed. Thanks for telling the truth.

Re: HBP Guy (# 1)

My mother took this briefly...took her off because of the horrible aide affects. A nurse told us this medication was originally for mental patients! You should try CBD oil. My mother is now totally off BP meds and on CBD and not only is her BP down better than it’s ever been, but she feels so much better. I’m not a doctor, I’m just telling you it works for my mom.

Jewels- I was on a low dose of clonidine for approximately 8 months. I was told that long term use of this drug can actually cause BP spikes and sure enough it did with me. My doctor said it was not the first drug of choice for HBP because of this problem. She immediately took me off it.

Re: Patty (# 5)

Yes, I get BP spikes when it wears off...I hate it. My ears ring and head buzzes loud, sometimes louder than other times. I hear you just can't stop taking it. Asking the Dr for something else next week, maybe I can wean off it. I take 40 mg of lisinoprol a day along with the clonidine now. It also makes me so very tired. I take clonidine 3x a day, more if I get spikes.

Re: Jewels (# 6)
You are right - you must wean off clonidine gradually. As I recall it took me 2-3 weeks to get off completely. At that point BP spikes stopped but other side effects continued for a while longer.Best wishes to you.

Re: Patty (# 7)

How much were you taking when you weaned off? I take 0.1 1/2 three x a day.

I have been on clonidine since 2003. I'm taken 0.2mg. Half in the am. And half in the evening. For along time I have been having ringing in my ears and hissing sounds, sometimes so loud its disturbing. I also take generic Norvasc and Benecar generic. I never thought it good be the clonidine that caused the ringing in my ears.
