    Reviewed clonidineon 3/28/2019This drug is powerful and lowers blood pressure but it has a tendency to make your neck shoulders and back hurt... also the thing I hate about this drug is how very dangerous it is to get off from, it can even be fatal even under medical supervision because no other drugs can keep the hypertensive rebound at bay while changing to another drug. If you miss a dose, your blood pressure can spike dangerously high. I never would have took this drug from my nurse practitioner had I

    Reviewed Catapreson 9/2/2017YES, I WISH I KNEW HOW HARD IT WOULD BE TO CHANGE TO OTHER HBP MEDS.OTHER MEDS DO NOT LOWER YOUR BP BECAUSE CLONIDINE IS SO STRONG AND THE BODY GETS ADDICTED TO IT. IT CAUSES PANIC ATTACKS,EVEN IN YOUR SLEEP,NERVOUS,CONFUSION,FORGETFULNESS,HEADACHES,MENTAL ILLNESS,INSOMNIA,NO ENERGY NOR, INTEREST TO GO OR DO ANYTHING.I DON'T KNOW WHAT WILL GET ME OFF CLONIDINE THAT WON'T MAKE MY BP GO SKY HIGH.I REGRET EVER TAKING CLONIDINE.

    Reviewed Catapreson 3/11/2017I have used Clonidine for my sleep for several years, it also keeps my high blood pressure low. Kills two birds with one stone! Just please make sure you take it everytime your doc says/ everyday. Very high risk of stroke! but besides that, it works great!
