The brand name is Catapres. It's commonly used to treat w/d's, it's also used in treatment of alcohol detox
smoking cessation. It's also been used to treat insomnia, menstrual symptoms, and in its sustained release form, even ADHD. I say give it a shot, there have been countless people who indicate it really helps to reduce the symptoms of w/d....including the cold sweats, anxiety, insomnia, etc.
