 3  Anxiety, GAD Mild fatigue, foggy, and insomnia if taken before bedtime. Take .1mg Clonidine as needed for anxiety. Doesn't totally take the anxiety away, but makes it tolerable. The side effects almost outweigh the usefulness for anxiety. I only take Clonidine to avoid taking too much Ativan. 61 2 years

 1  hypertension would wake up at night and couldn't get back to sleep. Woke up at 2:30 for several days but the last straw was when I awakened at 11:30! Also, blood pressure was elevated a couple of hours prior to the next dose. F 56 14 days

 5  Hypertention, Heart failure Frequent headache. Annoying dry mouth. But this stuff has saved my life! Or my brain. As a rule, can knock bp down from 220/110 in half an hour, then further via subsequent tablets. Try not to take it near snacks or meals as it makes me terribly sleeping, have wondered if it affects blood sugar. F 73 1 years

 5  High Blood pressure Have to get up slow. Is not long acting so have to take several doses I consider this a wonder drug. Have had terrible reactions to about 8 other B.P. drugs. Conidine is a old drug that has been well researched. No constipation, swelling, etc. I am scared to death of all the new drugs that cause things like headaches, neuropathy, numbness in limbs, leg and hand cramps. F 68 15 years

 3  Hypertension I experienced bad headaches on this medication. This is the only medication I can tolerate without multiple side effects. After taking other medications without any success, I began taking Clonidine again. I cannot take it twice a day for more than a few days or the headache returns. Basically, I'm taking enough to keep my BP under control, but not enough to get headaches F 49

CLONIDINE  (CLONIDINE):  This medication is used alone or with other medications to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Clonidine belongs to a class of drugs (central alpha agonists) that act in the brain to lower blood pressure. It works by relaxing blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
