I know that Clonidine is used primarily for high blood pressure, and also used for ADHD, tics and Tourettes Syndrome, but can you use Clondine psychiatrically for anxiety?

I was on Clonodine 0.05mg BID in the past (2005) for a short time (forgot why I stopped).

I was just wondering if it would be possible to even obtain a script for Clonidine for anxiety if I spoke to my pdoc about it at my next appt.

(I used an interaction checker and the main thing is just to watch for hypotension if it was added to my current mix.)

Thanks,

Andy.

Yes, this medication is sometimes used for anxiety. More to control physical sx than emotional ones, so you'd maybe have to add in some CBT skills and coping skills, but there could be potential benefit. talk to pdoc...
