Clonidine false positive

I am a counselor at a ministry for addiction and need to know if clonidine will test positive for Benzo's. ## Clonidine is not a benzo. It is a blood pressure medication and off label can also help with anxiety and insomnia. This med is often confused with klonopin because of the similar sound of the 2 words and for the fact that is can be used to treat anxiety. But the chemicals in clonidine are completely different then the chemicals in benzodiazepines , so I couldn't see any reason at all it could test positive for a benzo . I also researched clonidine pretty extensively when my dr suggested it for me. So the answer is no. Don't worry , it's not a benzo . Hopefully you are also not confusing it with klonopin, cuz if it's klonopin your talking about then yes of cou...

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!

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...

Clonidine withdrawal

My diabetic and hypertensive mother (age 88) was recently hospitalized for weakness and frequent falling. She has been on clonidine and a new doctor took her off it. She has been having horrible waves of nausea and diarrhea for about a week and a half now. She has to force herself to eat a couple of bites of each meal, and she weighed all of 92 pounds when she went in. Besides the hell she is going through, I am worried about her wasting away. How long does the clonidine withdrawal process last? ## Are you saying they just abruptly took her off of it? Did they replace it with something else? Are they providing supportive therapy? I doubt that the hospital will really let her waste away, if she starts to lose too much weight and isn't holding anything down, they will force nutrients ...
