Accidental double dose of Clonidine
1 Reply RSS
I am on Clonidine for anxiety and other reasons. I take 0.1mg to 0.2mg at a time. Today I was watching my grandkids when I took 0.2mg around 3:30 - 4:00. I had such a hectic day, got home at 7 and took it again forgetting I already took it. Will I be ok? I'm a little scared... ## How are you doing? Did you experience any adverse effects? In most cases, unless someone is allergic to a medication, accidentally taking a double dose, just once, will usually only cause worsening of some of the side effects, which the FDA lists as possibly including nausea, dizziness, sedation, lowered heart rate, and lowered blood pressure. But in some cases, this could put some people in danger, so in such situations, it is always best to seek emergency medical advice, via an ER doctor, or urgent care c...

How many clonidine pills would be considered an overdose?
55 Replies RSS
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 withdrawal & Tolerance
3 Replies RSS
I am taking Clonidine for an off label use to treat Bruxism(teeth clenching at night). Currently 0.2mg just at night ,but considering trying 0.3mg. My questions are 1) I've heard some people develop a tolerance to Clonidine after taking it for a longtime(so it becomes ineffective and the dose must be increased or treatment stopped). How long can I take before I should take a break ,so I don;t develop this tolerance? 2) If I take 0.3mg and then want to stop taking it , if i reduce my dose by 0.05(half a tablet) every 3-4 days should that avoid rebound hypertension ? My doctor said withdrawal and tolerance are not problems at all so i can stop cold when i want, but don;t think it is a drug she has experience prescribing (only prescribed it as I suggested trying it ,from studies I had ...

Tourette's Syndrome
3 Replies RSS
Has anyone used Respridol for Tourette's Syndrome? My son is almost 9, and may also have ADD. He is not really hyper, and behaves well at school. He was just started on Clonidine, but it hasn't been long enough to tell anything. The doc also mentioned Respridol, so I was just wondering. He also has moderate asthma, under control with Flovent. Thanks! ## Risperdal contains Risperidone, it is a potent atypical antipsychotic, which is approved to treat Schizophrenia, bipolar disorder and Schizoaffective disorder. Most other uses are off-label and I have no information on it being used for Tourettes. Have you asked the doctor about it? You can learn more about the medication here: ## I just started using Flovent and was advised to rinse my mouth and gargle after using to avoid getti...

Can Clonidine cause body odor?
2 Replies RSS
Been taking clonidine for 3 months. Wife says my normal smell is different and she doesn't like it. Can it make you smell? ## It isn't a reported side effect, but being logical, you are adding a chemical to your body that normally isn't present any time you take a medication, so it is possible that it could cause some changes to your normal body chemistry. Learn more Clonidine details here. And from the way you're describing it, that's what it sounds like it's done, it's just made some changes to your usual body chemistry, so you smell a little different than usual. That's not an actual odor, or smelling. However, if it really bothers your wife, then you might want to speak to your doctor about trying a different medication. Has she described what it smel...
