Common Questions and Answers about Clonidine side effects hallucinations


Avatar f tn but it is on the low side of normal...taking clonidine is gonna lower it even is powerful BP med and should be used under a drs supervision..low BP is even more dangerous at times than high Blood pressure Neurontin is an old interrpts pain signals to the and not a drug of abuse...the new nerve blocker/lyrica/has much more side effects and is often abused....but neither r physically abit forming...neurontin being much safer than lyrica...
1316877 tn?1275204213 It comes With a large spectrum of side effects and hallucinations I couldn't even begin to explain there are so many... the most interesting side effect is hearing voices a verbal hallucination. I have been on clonidine 12 milligram for two years. After reading about the side effects online I'm realizing I've had the side effects for a long period of time. Hearing everyones stories snapped me out of it I'm going to see my doctor tomorrow and ask him for something else.
585414 tn?1288944902 There are a lot of "unknowns" in me but there is one "known quantity". I have to work very closely with my psychopharmocologist and neurologist (who is a movement disorders specialist). That doesn't make me different from you. Actually it makes me quite the same.
585414 tn?1288944902 I was in a dissociative state and thought it was the end of my life. That thinking is disappating. And today is the last day of the Clonidine patch so things would be at their worst. Why aren't they? Well the Piracetam is working. That is not a psychiatric treatment. And the psychosis is not from schizoaffective (which I am documented as recovered from).
585414 tn?1288944902 And in time for spring its likely I will no longer be homebound because of its effects on dystonic spasms. Alpha blockers such as Clonidine treat cognition in studies. Zofran treats psychosis from Parkinsons' and is an adjunct for schizophrenia. Rhodiola treats tardive dyskinesia. So as for these two "unknowns" once they understand them better, its clear why these treatments worked in me and very well may in others.
585414 tn?1288944902 I was started on Clozaril and was one of the few people to develop extra pyramidal side effects from it. Then I had abnormal movements. Those were diagnosed as tardive dyskinesia.
585414 tn?1288944902 I am trying to find out if anyone has had any difficulties with personality alterations or other unusual side effects from Methocarb? I take everything as prescribed but due to severity of the wide variety of spasms from the tardive dyskinesia (dystonic, myoclonic, akathestic) I need to take a full dose of Methocarb, Skelaxin and Flexaril which I have read have personality altering effects.
585414 tn?1288944902 But this year was somewhat different. On the negative side, the Clonidine and Flexaril have stopped working as well so I now have extreme dystonic spasms and dysphasic choking spasms. On the positive side, my recovery with glycine has been noted on a higher level as well as the fact that I meet the criteria for tardive psychosis, tardive dysphrenia and tardive dysmentia. However, I was there for the primary purpose which was to get a flu shot. But as with every provider I keep them up to date.
585414 tn?1288944902 As for side effects, there was some nervousness and visual hallucinations. Those are exactly the same side effects I got from Mirapex which is a standard anti-Parkinson's medication used for tardive dyskinesia. What treats tardive dyskinesia (and the experimental criteria I am under standard clinical study for tardive psychosis, tardive dysphrenia and tardive dysmentia) can if it boosts dopamine potentially cause psychosis. So I remain on guard for that.
Avatar m tn I've suffered from rls all my life so I guess I've been experiencing some major rebound. One of the more pleasant side effects from the opiates was that it controlled my rls like a dream. I'm not going to use again I'm just so tired I'm starting to become confused. Besides, when I cut my contacts I really cut my contacts. Thanks for the advice so far...heather I haven't had a chance to check my pm just yet. Give me just another second.
585414 tn?1288944902 And potentially tardive psychosis and tardive dysmentia. Not much research generally is done on long term side effects when there are no options. Now Clozaril is an option because it does not cause tardive dyskinesia.
585414 tn?1288944902 But it did worsen dystonia, cause depression and psychosis as side effects. But its being studied for tardive dyskinesia. And that's me. That's "my" reaction. Many people are helped. Including me. Many anti-Parkinsonian meds such as Tetrabenazene can cause temporary movement disorders and depression. And some such as Mirapex and Symmetrel can cause psychosis (as they did in me). With Parkinson's in treating it you are bringing up dopamine. And that will cause psychosis.
Avatar m tn My 3 year old daughter is due to switch from Risperdol to Abilify this week (has autism and possible schizophrenia or bipolar with hallucinations) and I am wondering what side effects you found to be most bothersome. ***Please don't comment about her age unless you are familiar with early pediatric antipsychotic use. I am well aware of how absurd it sounds and no, I am not crazy and neither is her doctor.
Avatar f tn Please note that there are several moderate drug interactions with your medications, for example, sertraline (Zoloft), pregabalin (Lyrica), clonidine, and methocarbamol (Robaxin) all can increase side effects such dizziness, drowsiness, and impaired thinking and judgment when taken together. It would be a good idea to review your medication regimen with your provider and pharmacist.
1006065 tn?1251482269 I have over-the-top/dangerous side effects. I took Ambien, went straight to bed and my family found me outside in the STREET in the middle of the night! I tried it three different times and had somnambulance (sleepwalking) every time. The dr. and the pharmacist said NEVER take it again. Also tried Lunesta and Sonata. I was UP for two days on both meds and never went to sleep (reverse effect) so was AGAIN told...don't ever take them!
585414 tn?1288944902 Its in good hands now. But as you can see despite having 3 unknown adverse side effects of medications, my goal is to see them identified treated and prevented. I know when and if they are identified they are extremely rare or why would I encourage a family member (as well as other people I know judiciously) to seek help.
1684282 tn?1505701570 hallucinations, drowsiness, insomnia, headaches, swelling of the throat and face, nausea, vomiting, muscle tightness or weakness, rash, and constipation. When consumed in higher doses, Tramadol can cause a euphoric feeling as well as shallow breathing and death from overdose. Nonetheless, the physicians persist on thinking about this medication in the way they got used to when it first came out and the way it was "sold" to them by the pharmaceutical reps.
1162610 tn?1262832616 Keep the medication in a secure place where others cannot get to it. Tramadol can cause side effects that may impair your thinking or reactions. Be careful if you drive or do anything that requires you to be awake and alert. Do not stop using tramadol suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, hallucinations, trouble sleeping, or breathing problems.
Avatar f tn During the time I was off Clonidine (which is my working mood stabilizer, it was approved that I stop it due to side effects, I follow my provider's directions) I did become grandiose and think that I could take on too many things and seemed on this endless campaign to symptomatize people who had put me down before I recovered. It was hostile and got out of control.
Avatar f tn 2mg Metoporolol 50 mg tab Sandoz (1 twice a day)—recently told to half the second one Levothyroxin 88mgc tab Mylan Bayer low dose 81 mg Hydralazine 25 mg tab Par (1 three times a day) Amlodipie (generic for Norvasc) 10mg tab Mylan All seem to be rather effective, but my mom complains of hallucinations, “seeing spots” and cramping in her hands when she takes the Metoporol; she takes this one individually and experiences the side effects shortly afterwards.
Avatar n tn I have been taking this medicine for three years with no side effects except to lower blood pressure. I have only had these episodes twice. once today and once yesterday. That would be day 2 and day 3 if detox. Never before detox.
Avatar n tn I understand about feeling like you have lost something, and yes, I believe it's the Sub. Long term use of Sub, like other opiates will have side effects, like a lack of emotional feelings, besides physical side effects. If and when you decide to come off the Sub, these things should return to normal. Since you're on such a small dose, maybe it's time for you to start to come off the Sub? You may want to get some clonidine and maybe a anti-depressant if you decide to stop the Sub.
Avatar f tn heck, you practically have to be sitting in bed when you take it...but I've also had some of the other side effects..not recently..but several years ago I had hallucinations, would carry on conversations with people i'd have no recollection of (one of which I still hear about from my wife).... so, I'm a little nervous about taking it these days...last night I couldn't sleep for first time in months but decided agains take ambien...just lived through it..but I hate it....
695464 tn?1227798984 When this drug was prescribed for me it was an alternative to Zoloft which I hated because I experienced horrible side effects. I was told that Clonazepam was something that I would build up an immunity to but was NEVER told it was addictive. Now I am downright scared! Has anyone out there come off this stuff? I do not want to take something that I am addicted to, but at the same time I am also afraid of having nothing at all.
Avatar f tn However, patients should be aware that this could lead to a cycle of increasing doses and worsening side-effects. In addition, as dosage is increased, the potential for addiction becomes greater. [edit] Cross Tolerance Benzodiazepines share a similar mechanism of action to various sedative compounds which act via enhancing the GABAA receptor. Cross tolerance typically means that one drug will alleviate the withdrawal effects of another.
585414 tn?1288944902 For some people Clozaril is highly effective but for all people it has severe side effects and requires weekly blood monitoring (which changes to bi-weekly after half a year and after a year to monthly if no blood dyscreias emerge).
228686 tn?1211558307 Does it make you even for the day or keep you calm or stable. Does the benefits out weight the side effects? Are you just afraid of what the w/d's are going to do to you or that you will go back and use again. Do you feel like your at the lake and the water feels cold and the ppl in the lake are screaming, jump in and you will get use to it. The worst thing is you go back on it but at least you will know.

933174 tn?1375796153 If you stopped the medications all at once you may have gotten withdrawal symptoms and when I did that (against all good judgment would never do it again) I had hallucinations of having rabies (horrific) as well but then again I have schizoaffective disorder and before my recent recovery (read through my posts) I had psychotic thoughts as well. I of course couldn't say what's going on for sure but I'd say you need to have a full diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Good info. The more you venture into the less common meds, the more desperate the side effects seem to be. I kept having huge problems with the bradycardia and the pacemakeer has honestly been the highlight of 2008. I tell my EP md that I recommend them to people. Have you had problems with heart failure off the back of all your heart ****? (Well put). If I wasn't ALWAYS fully tanked up on all my keds, by rate would never be under 142. Yours stays that high even on lots of flecainide.
