Starting Clonidine. What to expect?

4 posts in this topic

Hi y'all. I'm already on a cocktail of Prozac 60mg and Abilify 30mg, but I'm still having trouble sleeping and with panic attacks. So my pdoc prescribed me Clonidine .1mg, and tonight's my first night while on it. What should I expect? I should also provide some background that I was on propranolol but It didn't do a thing for me. My pdoc also measured my blood pressure and told me it was high for someone my age (I'm 21). So, are there any side effects I should know about? Will this restore my sleep and sanity?

Seems to me I took this years ago and it was helpful to a point. It got me through the time I needed it, but I wasn't on it long. I know low blood pressure can happen but your pdoc checked you for that, and I had no problems. See how it goes. I hope it helps. It wasn't like a benzo, which I prefer because I feel calmer on them, but it had its place. YMMV, as with everything.

Your Mileage May Vary. As in, it's possible that you may experience (a) different result(s).
