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 they can, there is nothing I can do to help you save a life, if that's what it comes down to. I 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...

Peach Pill 129 Fancy R

round peach pill fancy r 129 what does this pill do to u? and what are there sider affects ## The pill in description is Clonidine HCL (0.3 mg). It has been prescribed historically as an antihypertensive drug, but has found new uses, including treatment of some types of neuropathic pain, opioid detoxification, sleep hyperhidrosis, anaesthetic use, and off-label, to counter the side effects of stimulant medications such as methylphenidate or amphetamine.

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...

Round peach pill L 165

I have a little fat round peach colored pill with a line down one side and L and 165 under that on the other side. ## Hi K, I located a round peach colored pill with a score line on one side and the letter "L" over "165" on the other side to be a 0.3mg Clonidine hydrochloride tablet. Clonidine is most commonly known for its use in treating high blood pressure. However, certain formulations can also reportedly treat ADHD and cancer pain. According to MedlinePlus.gov, Clonidine treats high blood pressure by decreasing your heart rate and relaxing the blood vessels so that blood can flow more easily through the body. They go on to state that Clonidine extended-release tablets may treat ADHD by affecting the part of the brain that controls attention and impulsivity. Labeler:...

Blood pressure spikes while taking Clonidine as directed

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? Such as being more active, smoking, drinking alcohol, having higher amounts of salt in your foods? Learn more Clonidine details here.

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 ...
