Common Questions and Answers about Clonidine wikipedia


880900 tn?1467273741 WIkipedia says clonidine is good for reducing sweats and general "unease", but the patient must withdraw carefully from it too, in order to avoid rebound hypertension. Has anyone had experience with this? Did you experience the rebound hypertension after using clonidine? I'm considering asking my doctor for this drug because I'm still experiencing w/d symptoms after 2 weeks w/d. I've not slept for four days, too. Thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn i am a memeber of a social group for kids with aspergers, a few months ago a few of the mothers were talking about their children taking clonidine the moms noticed favorable results, i am familiar with this drug, i did not know that developmental pediatric doctors, are now putting aspie kids on clonidine, how do you feel about this?
485277 tn?1237064619 Zofran (Ondenastron), Clonidine and the natural remedy rhodiola (as supervised by a neurologist) have been of great help. Zofran is an FDA approved medication used off label for Parkinson's psychosis and the good thing about it is unlike conventional antipsychotics it will not cause tardive dyskinesia and thus will not worsen Parkinsons'. Its of some use for schizophrenia but can only be used as an adjunct. It can be used on Parkinson's psychosis.
237500 tn?1189759431 The only thing I would add to this list is a blood pressure drug named clonidine. It effectively lowers the blood pressure and lessens many of the withdrawal symptoms. Most any doctor will prescribe it if you’re honest as to why you need it. Discuss dosages and frequency with your doctor. Thomas Recipe: 1. Valium (or another benzodiazepine such as Klonopin, Librium, Ativan or Xanax). Of these, Valium and Klonopin are best suited for tapering since they come in tablet form.
Avatar n tn I can't seem to go below 5-6 norco a day, if I do, it really kicks my *** and can't function to well without taking 1-2. Clonidine hcl .1mg seems to have little effect on helping to sleep, but lunesta sparingly lets me get 3-5 hours every couple days, still waking to (restless leg syndrome/ skin crawling) type of sensation that is relieved by 1 norco and about 30 -45 minutes, sometimes I may even get another hour sleep.
Avatar f tn It seems to help the physical symptoms similar to what the prescription med. clonidine does If you read what I am discussing, I am in no way talking about hair-brained $5000 detox clinics in Mexico. Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar f tn I have been away from the forums but finally feel good enough to update. I've had to change my low dosis of Clonidine as the manufacturer stopped making the dosis I took, so that took a good month of feeling like crap while my body re-adjusted to a new dosage, my BP is ok, but it does go around 140/90 with activity, at this time not sure what the doctor will do , I'm being referred to the Cardiologist who diagnosed me with P.O.T.S but I was given an appointment until next October!
322138 tn?1306246734 If not, you might discuss Clonidine as a possibility to help ween you off the codeine. Clonidine will help with withdrawal and can very safely overlap when you start Wellbutrin. I personally take ritalin, Wellbutrin, Clonidine and on rare occasions, low doses of Xanax. Most importantly, I would suggest you do everything you can to see a therapist on a regular basis. Seriously, therapy has made an incredible difference in my life.

Avatar n tn org/wiki/Clonidine Interesting - the drug Clonidine is given in conjunction with an ADHD drug to help kids on those drugs sleep at night. It is a sedative, not really a ADHD drug. This would explain why your child was so zombie like. Take a look at the above link and see if you can figure out why he was given this drug?
Avatar f tn ) Just go to Wikipedia and read the first paragraph on Clonidine. Can you call your doctor and have them call in some clonidine at the pharmacy for you? It would help you IMMENSELY! Not only with the high blood pressure, but many of the other symptoms you are experiencing.
Avatar m tn It'll be several weeks of wds with the first week being the worse but you can do it. Your doctor can give you clonidine to help. Look up the Thomas recipe here for supplements that can help too. Drink lots of water try to eat keep moving because it will make you feel better. Try to get outside. And keep posting here. Let us know how you are doing.
Avatar m tn Are there comfort meds going to be Clonidine and Buspar (Buspirone)?? Do not get the Buspar mixed up with the Wellbutrin (Bupropion), they are different. I will send a Prayer or more out to YOU so that everything works out OK! Do Not let your mind freak you out. The physical w/ds are over and done with way sooner then you think. Keep us updated?? PS> Write down the meds they are going to use and let us know. I am sure others will chime in, if they had experienced these..OK?
Avatar f tn No, they are two different things, just looked it up....
Avatar f tn // Should help for sleep and panic attacks but can be addictive..
2030769 tn?1343651274 We need to feed ALL 3 of these things to have a balanced successful recovery. I read the Wikipedia article and a few more about Phenibut. It's been sold for over 30 yrs in Russia and is even given to their astronauts because it assists with anxiety, tension, fear, stress and related insomnia, fatigue, PTSD, depression and irregular heart beat.
Avatar f tn I have heard of dilaudid but wasnt sure what it was. Looked it up online, and read this quote from Wikipedia: "Dilaudid is 3 times stronger than heroin on a milligram basis" I had no idea. This is definitely some strong stuff. Makes me feel like a wimp for being so afraid of hydrocodone withdrawals.
Avatar n tn All this information is from Wikipedia. "Buprenorphine is an opioid drug with partial agonist and antagonist actions. Suboxone contains small doses of opiates as well as the opioid antagonist naloxone to deter illicit intravenous preparation of the tablet. In the recent years, buprenorphine has been introduced in most European countries as transdermal formulation ("patch") for the treatment of chronic pain.
Avatar m tn hydrochlorid, called atarax, and clonidine and Valproat (anti epileptica). And one night - in the morning after been in a mess all night with panic attacks, and the feeling of drowning, the night watch gave me 10 mg Valium. That was the only addictive meds I got during my stay...! I am now 34 days clean of opiates! I was out in 11 days. To days later I went to my doctor and got a prescription for ambients... Then I startet smoking cannabis, and taking ambients...again..
Avatar f tn Did you know that if the norepinephrine goes high enough, it can cause a panic attack according to what I've read? If they do a clonidine suppression test on you, as I had done by order of an endocrinologist because of the 515 number, I discovered they are supposed to do a blood metanephrine test at the same time, which the doctor didn't order at the same time for me. Also, I've read on national institute of health, a U.S.
Avatar n tn Not to overstate it, but many of us have had great success with clonidine, a blood pressure med that has been shown to help with many withdrawl symptoms. Check with your doctor, tell him/her you want off the pills and see if he/she will put you on it..also search the forums for the "Thomas recipe" which has been very helpful for many folks here. Good luck and God Bless..stay with us here, we'll help you through it.
Avatar m tn First of all, I'm not a doctor and have zero experience with Tramadol (though plenty of experience with opiates in general), but I do have some self-taught medical knowledge concerning neurotransmitters. After looking at Wikipedia, trying to answer your question, it seems to me the best non-opioid anti-depressant 'replacement' for Tramadol are the drugs known as SNRIs. Well known examples are Effexor and Cymbalta.
Avatar f tn I told him all that had been going on and he asked to make sure he got reports and he should after all he came up with the idea originally. I am not on any supplements, but while there he printed of a sheet from Wikipedia. He is a huge supportor of holistic medicines and went to Yale or Havard one of the Toffee schools to learn acupuncture My insurance refuses to cover it. Any way he was talking up Orthomolecular medicine to me, I am clueless and have to read about it.
Avatar f tn The medication I am on now for dystonic spasms, Tenex which is also serving as a mood stabilizer in being related to Clonidine (used as a mood stabilizer but not often due to severe side effects, its an alpha blocker) has practically lowered my sex drive down to zero.
Avatar f tn You could ask your dr for tapering advise, but then he/she assured you it wasn't an opioid and all you have to do is read what Wikipedia has to say about this drug or ask your Smartphone. There is a very long journal that was started years ago with just folks trying to stop their tramadol addictions. I'll give you the link in case you are interested in reading there. http://www.medhelp.
Avatar n tn My boyfriend had to be inhouse detoxed for 5 days, they used Methadone and Clonidin, and Trazadone. Clonidine is to keep your blood pressure normal during withdrawals, so you don't get too anxious and the Trazadone will help you sleep. The best way to detox is to have proffessional medical help, call your county hospital for a recomendation for an Addiction Psychiatrist, he will be able to perscribe the medications you need for withdrawal.
Avatar m tn but you told someone to look it up on Wikipedia for more info so that said, you have to know that it hits the said receptors as opiates. That's why it makes you feel better! And to someone else's point, benzos are downers....that has ALOT to do with killing your energy and motivation and that's on top of already having a lack of energy from sub withdraws. It's a sedative! I know it's not what you want to do or hear but I really think you need to bite the bullet and go cold turkey.
Avatar m tn Sheriff’s deputies seized white pills prescribed to Becky Tortellet as well as a prescription bottle of clonidine and other pills, a search warrant shows. They also seized paperwork from the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services.
Avatar m tn I know in the past my withdrawals lasted about 5 days. Here's what wikipedia said about it..... Gabapentin (administered orally) is one of two medications (the other being flumazenil, which is administered intravenously) used in the expensive Prometa Treatment Protocol for methamphetamine, cocaine and alcohol addiction. Gabapentin is administered at a dosage of 1200 mg taken at bedtime for 40–60 days.
