What are the side effects of Clonidine hydrochloride?
can it cause me to put on weight ?
Asked by Alissa Aran 6 months ago.
Clonidine, because of the way it works, often caused drowsiness &/or dizziness, tired weak feeling, and headache--especially if you're just starting it. As far as for weight gain, maybe it's from the constipation that clonidine can cause or from the edema (where fluid accumulates under your skin or elsewhere) that is a side effect.

Is clonidine a good treatment for tourette syndrome ?
my son's motor tics are very violent and need to be controled they hurt him.the only information i can find on it says it is a blood presure medicine.
Asked by Homer Matherly 6 months ago.
I do believe that CLONIDINE is the drug of choice for hypertension when it needs to come down quickly. I do believe that KLONOPIN (trade name) CLONAZEPAM (generic name) is used as an anti-convulsant....(and maybe for tourette). It is very common in the medical community to mix-up the spelling and/or pronounciation of these 2 very different drugs. KLONOPIN/CLONAZEPAM: is a schedule IV narcotic has a long half-life tolerance develops requires weeks for steady state 0.013-0.072 ug/ml for steady state causes physical and psychological dependence when stopped abruptly causes withdrawal symptoms adult maximum daily dose is 20 mg hope this helps. mediterranean ancestory?

How fast should the catapres 75mg tablet take effect?
what should be the interval time should i check on the blood pressure of a patient after taking the catapres? thanks
Asked by Noble Portnoy 6 months ago.
Catapres (clonidine hydrochloride USP) acts relatively quick. The patient’s blood pressure declines within 30 to 60 minutes after an oral dose, the maximum decrease occurring within 2 to 4 hours. You can check 30-60 minutes for therapeutic effects after ingestion or wait the 2-4 hours to see the max therapeutic effect of lowering the patient's pressure.

Im taking catapres 75mg. everytime my bp goes up, how many tables should i take in one day?
Asked by Nannie Nunley 6 months ago.
Adults The dose of Catapres® (clonidine hydrochloride USP) must be adjusted according to the patient's individual blood pressure response. The following is a general guide to its administration. Initial Dose 0.1 mg tablet twice daily (morning and bedtime). Elderly patients may benefit from a lower initial dose. Maintenance Dose Further increments of 0.1 mg per day may be made at weekly intervals if necessary until the desired response is achieved. Taking the larger portion of the oral daily dose at bedtime may minimize transient adjustment effects of dry mouth and drowsiness. The therapeutic doses most commonly employed have ranged from 0.2 mg to 0.6 mg per day given in divided doses. Studies have indicated that 2.4 mg is the maximum effective daily dose, but doses as high as this have rarely been employed. Answered by Jinny Hoying 6 months ago.
As an ER nurse I think you are stating a very very high dose of Catapres. I would check with your pharmacist about the dose if you cannot talk to your doctor. Doctors prescribe these meds differently depending on each persons personal needs. Don't take advice about your prescribed medication from anyone except the doctor prescribing it.

You should be taking your meds according to the doctor's instructions.. I've never heard of a medicine for bp that you'd take as needed. and I've been taking bp meds for about 30 years now. Answered by Wes Heither 6 months ago.
Mylan 125 pill, should she takes this everyday?
My mistake I had read the number wrong it says Mylan 152. I don't have a pill bottle, he had dropped her off with a zip lock bag with this pill in it, cut in half :(
Asked by Shayla Golackson 6 months ago.
I don't know much about this pill, My daughter come back from her dads and said that he put her on this pill. He won't explain anything to me. It irritates me that he gets her when ever he feels like it and is always putting her on something. My daughter is 9yrs old, and she is taking half a pill. The question I have is: Is this something that she should take everyday without missing 1 day, or is this something that is not going to do any harm if she does miss a day here and there. Answered by Fairy Kupka 6 months ago.
Edit! Ok, it is "Clonidine hydrochloride" - the brand name is Catapres. Catapres is not approved for high blood pressure use in children, I am not sure if your doctor made an executive decision, or what.. that is a little strange. It is prescribed for high blood pressure- is your child overweight at all? It's also used for hyperactive children, to get them to go to sleep at night. Does she have trouble settling down at night? At any rate, it's something I'd bring up with her father, you two have joint custody obviously- you should be in on the medical decisions as well. Answered by Altagracia Lamadrid 6 months ago.
I'm pretty sure Mylan is a pharmaceutical company. I find no reference to an actual drug. You need to speak with the physician who prescribed it for your daughter. If dad won't say who that is, bring the pills to the pharmacist, see if they can identify them, and then speak with the pediatrician you use. Answered by Mathew Tagaca 6 months ago.
Found a pill small yellow one side has two small lines and the letters eth and the other side has 445?
Any idea what it is???
Asked by Zachery Minney 6 months ago.
This pill should be CATAPRESS (trade name), Clonidine Hydrochloride (generic name), or simply Clonidine. It's a pill for blood pressure. This one should be a 0.2 MG dose. The two small markings are actually double L's which together with the 445 make the imprint code. Answered by Aracely Belasco 6 months ago.
No idea but I know who does. Your local poison control center at 1-800-222-1222. Just describe the pill to them and they will identify it for you. Answered by Delilah Learned 6 months ago.
Why do you need to find it..unless it is somewhere a small child may find it..never take a Pill that has not been prescibed to you. Answered by Rena Rufo 6 months ago.
Bohemian is correct, here is a web site, you can do an advanced search for imprint codes & they have most of them I have even looked for. www.rxlist.com Answered by Darline Nardo 6 months ago.

Any help and advice greatly apprecrciated, as the quaulity of my life has hit rock botttom. Thank you for any advice. Answered by Rosalind Gandrud 6 months ago.
You said it - bad combination. Dangerous most likely. There are too many legitimate options to treat chronic pain to have you suffer from the pain and its treatment. Most physicians would combine an anti-inflammatory pain medication (oxaprozin), acetaminophen, a skeletal muscle relaxant (other than carisoprodol), a drug which works on the gap between nerves or the nerve synapse (amitriptyline although there are a great many), a drug which works on the nerve membrane such as gabapentin, and an opioid such as tramadol hydrochloride. Clonidine may be utilized but I would prefer its relative guanfacine which has virtually no side effects. There are other drugs which may be utilized as well. Alcohol is obviously a poor choice. Rest deprivation - almost certainly present - must be addressed. I am very sorry that you have so much to deal with and that you have run out of emotional resources. It does not sound as if you have been aggressively treated medically however so there is still hope. JR Answered by Eryn Munt 6 months ago.

I am switching to Lisdexamfetamine (Vyvanse) next week. I am coming off of methylphenidate (Concerta) because it is no longer doing as well for me. I did try dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine) a couple of weeks when I was in high school and it made me aggressive. is that a concern with Vyvanse? even if I am switching to another stimulant I am afraid of the withdrawal. Is there withdrawal after switching stimulants? I also take escitalopram (Lexapro) and clonidine hydrochloride (Catapres) Answered by Emery Claudio 6 months ago.
