Tenex (Guanfacine) has the potential to help with attention span, it is effective for ADHD as an alternative to stimulants and also reduces hypertension and blood pressure, gets rid of tics, and aids with sleep. It is also said to reduce hyperarousal, re-experiencing and impulsiveness of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder..side effects are minimal and barely noticeable at 2mg and under. It enhances memory and performance, is metabolized in the kidneys with a half-life of 17 hours. Propranolol (Inderal) is a beta-blocker and is used in stagefright and for tremors, (Kim Jong Su a N Korean pistol shooter was disqualified for drug use from the Olympics and the 2 medals he won were forfeited after it was learned he used Inderal). It is not approved for ADHD but it is for anxiety, migraines, tension, primary exertional and Cluster headaches, hypertension, aggressiveness, ptsd, glaucoma, angina (chest pain), myocardial infarction, tremor etc. Surgeons, musicians, and performers sometimes use it to relax and take away tremor. IT is rapidly and completely absorbed thru the liver, half-life is 3-4 hours but a single oral dose lasts up to 12 hours at 80 or 80+ mg. It is an old medicine and very cheap, has few side effects, non addictive, can use as single dose.. Personally, I like propranolol. No side effects and works Answered by Salina Shomo 1 year ago.

My grandmother works with kids with desabilities, ADHD, ADD, etc. She has convinced me in so many ways that medication is not the answer for these kids. Find a ADHD specialist that will work with your daughters behavior and not push medication on her. Also, change her diet. No gluten or sugar. It's amazing what it will do. Is her speech problem caused by her ADHD? If not, have her go to speech therapy. My elementary school realized i had a speech problem and i went to speech therapy and was perfect in less than a year. Good luck. Answered by Toby Bruening 1 year ago.

Tenex is a Antihypertensive principally; it may have been prescribed to treat high Blood Pressure(BP) associated with Anxiety; it is not clear what your BP was when this medication was prescribed to you when you visited your Health practitioner so you may or may not have to take this for anxiety. Propranolol is an excellent antianxiety AND BP lowering medicine; and safe too (well documented for over 20 yrs).As it appears you have higher BP ;if you decide to take ONLY propranolol, you may have to increase the dose. To my knowledge, both drugs are specifically NOT used for ADHD.................. Answered by Shandra Kading 1 year ago.

I've never heard of tenex but I've heard of propranolol being used for anxiety and social anxiety but never adhd. I don't honestly think either of these meds will help your adhd, unless you've talked to someone about it already. Answered by Tesha Glascott 1 year ago.

Well before you rush to medicate yourself, try to find an alternate way of dealing with it. The good news is, you're aware of it and what it is so therefore it makes it better to deal with. You can handle it. Perhaps remove yourself from all outside distractions. (No phone, no tv, just a warm bath with candles and easy music or lying on your bed with "white noise"). If you're at work, I would simply go to the restroom, sit down and breath deep through your nose and let it out slowly through your mouth. Another thing is to sit at your desk (or wherever) and WRITE DOWN (make a list) of what's running through your head. Above all, try to remove yourself from anyone else or any distractions. Close your eyes, think. This is a much better alternative to drugging yourself up unnecessarily. Good luck. Answered by Dorie Ayling 1 year ago.

Normally, I'm on a daily 450 mg Lamictal, 2 mg Tenex, and 7.5 mg Deplin. However, due to miscalculation and travel circumstances, I haven't taken any of the above since Saturday. Since I take the lamictal and tenex morning and night, that's either four or five missed doses- I'm not really sure. I have the refill prescriptions, and I could drive to the pharmacy, but I'm currently feeling extremely jittery, and when I try to move my arms or look around, I feel very disoriented. I keep shivering and my left arm feels weirdly heavy and inflated at the same time, like a balloon with sand or something. I don't know if any of this makes any sense or anything. I've had to type this multiple times and I keep correcting typos. Then again, I could just need sleep, right? Should I risk driving to the pharmacy in this state, or go to sleep and wake up extra early to go tomorrow? If it's withdrawal, wouldn't the meds need time to metabolize anyway? Can this little time between doses make that big a difference considering the meds' half lives? What do I do? Answered by Danyelle Lanting 1 year ago.

Tenex (guanifacine) is a drug that acts like clonidine, in that it suppresses what is called sympathetic outflow from the vasomotor centers in the brain. It tends to slow down heart rate and decrease blood pressure. Suddenly stopping this drug can cause a rebound increase in sympathetic outflow (mainly nor-epinephrine). The drug literature oftentimes is not specific on that point and that hypertensive crisis is a risk. You need to catch up on that dose, but driving does not sound like an option, you better call someone to get it for you. Lamictal has anticonvulsant activity, suddely stopping it if you have been on it for a while can promote seizures, even if you never had seizures before. I do not know what deplin is, I cannot find it listed. Of all the drugs, the tenex withdrawal probably is the most risky, there is a special procedure to withdrawal from it requiring both beta and alpha blockers. Answered by Catherine Gayne 1 year ago.


Adderall, tenex and tylenol pm okay?
I am currently taking Adderall and my doctor prescriped Tenex to help with sleeping. It's effects arent working well. I know that Tenex increases the effectiveness of sleep aids.. but is it safe? Asked by Detra Zubia 1 year ago.

Dizziness, drowsiness, headache, constipation, gas pains, diarrhea, loss of appetite, fatigue, and nasal congestion may occur as side-effects. You tell me if it's safe. Also, it doesn't mix well with all drugs. Not sure about Adderall, but I would check one more time with your doctor to make sure he/she didn't make a mistake. It is generally regarded as a dangerous but highly effective drug. That it isn't working for you... You gotta see your doctor again. Answered by Aline Blunk 1 year ago.

Is tenex effective for depression or mood stabilizer?
I am interested in the history of this drug in young adult males Asked by Stacey Moline 1 year ago.

Tenex; guanfacine. Your best bet to recover the history of this drug is to google it. Answered by Moses Stemmler 1 year ago.

Tenex could definitely be called a mood stabilizer. But really what it does is it makes you able to concentrate on a single subject. It makes you more rigid, though at the cost of creativity. The same is true of many drugs used for ADD and ADHD. I will however say that I found it to have the least negative side effects of ADD drugs. Many of the others, I was either constantly grouchy, or I found myself awake for days at a time (it wasn't like I did not want to sleep like normal, and often I would lay in bed trying to sleep, but it was like I had just chugged a few cases of Monster or 5 hour energy.. Just had no need for sleep. This was especially true with Aderall). Answered by Kina Halter 1 year ago.

Clonidine and tenex are high blood pressure meds that have not been approved in the uk or usa for adhd.

It is also said to reduce hyperarousal, re-experiencing and impulsiveness of Post-traumatic Stress Disorder..side effects are minimal and barely noticeable at 2mg and under. It enhances memory and performance, is metabolized in the kidneys with a half-life of 17 hours. Propranolol (Inderal) is a beta-blocker and is used in stagefright and for tremors, (Kim Jong Su a N Korean pistol shooter was disqualified for drug use from the Olympics and the 2 medals he won were forfeited after it was learned he used Inderal). It is not approved for ADHD but it is for anxiety, migraines, tension, primary exertional and Cluster headaches, hypertension, aggressiveness, ptsd, glaucoma, angina (chest pain), myocardial infarction, tremor etc. Surgeons, musicians, and performers sometimes use it to relax and take away tremor. IT is rapidly and completely absorbed thru the liver, half-life is 3-4 hours but a single oral dose lasts up to 12 hours at 80 or 80+ mg. It is an old medicine and very cheap, has few side effects, non addictive, can use as single dose.. Personally, I like propranolol. No side effects and works Answered by Marin Maeda 1 year ago.

My grandmother works with kids with desabilities, ADHD, ADD, etc. She has convinced me in so many ways that medication is not the answer for these kids. Find a ADHD specialist that will work with your daughters behavior and not push medication on her. Also, change her diet. No gluten or sugar. It's amazing what it will do. Is her speech problem caused by her ADHD? If not, have her go to speech therapy. My elementary school realized i had a speech problem and i went to speech therapy and was perfect in less than a year. Good luck. Answered by Francesco Nilsson 1 year ago.

Tenex is a Antihypertensive principally; it may have been prescribed to treat high Blood Pressure(BP) associated with Anxiety; it is not clear what your BP was when this medication was prescribed to you when you visited your Health practitioner so you may or may not have to take this for anxiety. Propranolol is an excellent antianxiety AND BP lowering medicine; and safe too (well documented for over 20 yrs).As it appears you have higher BP ;if you decide to take ONLY propranolol, you may have to increase the dose. To my knowledge, both drugs are specifically NOT used for ADHD.................. Answered by Minerva Gheza 1 year ago.

I've never heard of tenex but I've heard of propranolol being used for anxiety and social anxiety but never adhd. I don't honestly think either of these meds will help your adhd, unless you've talked to someone about it already. Answered by Charlena Able 1 year ago.

Well before you rush to medicate yourself, try to find an alternate way of dealing with it. The good news is, you're aware of it and what it is so therefore it makes it better to deal with. You can handle it. Perhaps remove yourself from all outside distractions. (No phone, no tv, just a warm bath with candles and easy music or lying on your bed with "white noise"). If you're at work, I would simply go to the restroom, sit down and breath deep through your nose and let it out slowly through your mouth. Another thing is to sit at your desk (or wherever) and WRITE DOWN (make a list) of what's running through your head. Above all, try to remove yourself from anyone else or any distractions. Close your eyes, think. This is a much better alternative to drugging yourself up unnecessarily. Good luck. Answered by Malisa Coppens 1 year ago.


Lamictal, Tenex, Deplin withdrawal question?

Normally, I'm on a daily 450 mg Lamictal, 2 mg Tenex, and 7.5 mg Deplin. However, due to miscalculation and travel circumstances, I haven't taken any of the above since Saturday. Since I take the lamictal and tenex morning and night, that's either four or five missed doses- I'm not really sure. I have the refill prescriptions, and I could drive to the pharmacy, but I'm currently feeling extremely jittery, and when I try to move my arms or look around, I feel very disoriented. I keep shivering and my left arm feels weirdly heavy and inflated at the same time, like a balloon with sand or something. I don't know if any of this makes any sense or anything. I've had to type this multiple times and I keep correcting typos. Then again, I could just need sleep, right? Should I risk driving to the pharmacy in this state, or go to sleep and wake up extra early to go tomorrow? If it's withdrawal, wouldn't the meds need time to metabolize anyway? Can this little time between doses make that big a difference considering the meds' half lives? What do I do? Answered by Rolland Perricone 1 year ago.

Tenex (guanifacine) is a drug that acts like clonidine, in that it suppresses what is called sympathetic outflow from the vasomotor centers in the brain. It tends to slow down heart rate and decrease blood pressure. Suddenly stopping this drug can cause a rebound increase in sympathetic outflow (mainly nor-epinephrine). The drug literature oftentimes is not specific on that point and that hypertensive crisis is a risk. You need to catch up on that dose, but driving does not sound like an option, you better call someone to get it for you. Lamictal has anticonvulsant activity, suddely stopping it if you have been on it for a while can promote seizures, even if you never had seizures before. I do not know what deplin is, I cannot find it listed. Of all the drugs, the tenex withdrawal probably is the most risky, there is a special procedure to withdrawal from it requiring both beta and alpha blockers. Answered by Sage Giarrusso 1 year ago.


Adderall, tenex and tylenol pm okay?
I am currently taking Adderall and my doctor prescriped Tenex to help with sleeping. It's effects arent working well. I know that Tenex increases the effectiveness of sleep aids.. but is it safe? Asked by Amal Lafratta 1 year ago.

Dizziness, drowsiness, headache, constipation, gas pains, diarrhea, loss of appetite, fatigue, and nasal congestion may occur as side-effects. You tell me if it's safe. Also, it doesn't mix well with all drugs. Not sure about Adderall, but I would check one more time with your doctor to make sure he/she didn't make a mistake. It is generally regarded as a dangerous but highly effective drug. That it isn't working for you... You gotta see your doctor again. Answered by Vertie Gorzynski 1 year ago.


Does tenex cause drowiness?
Asked by Renay Hallerman 1 year ago.

Tenex, which is the brand name for guanfacine can absolutely cause drowsiness. It is dose-related, so you might be able to decrease the dose if the drowsiness is very bad. Answered by Pricilla Yaroch 1 year ago.

Now will the Tenex affect me like the Clonidine did since they are so closely related? Please help! It's very important. I don't want to end up doing this again. Answered by Ashli Cimko 1 year ago.

Tenex is a long acting drug so the effects are spread out over time. Where as clonidine is a fast acting drug. Answered by Garret Wyant 1 year ago.

Is tenex effective for depression or mood stabilizer?
I am interested in the history of this drug in young adult males Asked by Boyce Radley 1 year ago.

Tenex; guanfacine. Your best bet to recover the history of this drug is to google it. Answered by Danette Szymczak 1 year ago.

Tenex could definitely be called a mood stabilizer. But really what it does is it makes you able to concentrate on a single subject. It makes you more rigid, though at the cost of creativity. The same is true of many drugs used for ADD and ADHD. I will however say that I found it to have the least negative side effects of ADD drugs. Many of the others, I was either constantly grouchy, or I found myself awake for days at a time (it wasn't like I did not want to sleep like normal, and often I would lay in bed trying to sleep, but it was like I had just chugged a few cases of Monster or 5 hour energy.. Just had no need for sleep. This was especially true with Aderall). Answered by Classie Seals 1 year ago.

I just want to start off I was against meds for kids. But my daughters have mental health issues and they didn't get help until they were older because most people think including me its just kids behaving badly. This can really eat at a child self esteem when the problem is medical and they are not being treated. My son is 10 has adhd and we tried the stimulants and they are not working anymore. His main problem is aggression and impulsiveness and with the focus. Has anyone tried Tenex or Clonidine for this problem. I have done research but I want would like to hear experiences from people. Please only respond if you have taken it or have a child that is on or was on the medication. Answered by Celsa Krupa 1 year ago.

Clonidine and tenex are high blood pressure meds that have not been approved in the uk or usa for adhd. Though some doctors are prescribing them i would be very wary of any doctor that would do so because of the side effects these produce and to my knowledge and my shrinks i cant see how these would benefit any1 with adhd. A good site to check out for info is www.drugs.com. Have you tried staterra or the other approved non stimulant meds?? good luck. Answered by Almeta Ensley 1 year ago.

I have never heard of dore..However I have an ADHD son.My own personal experience has been to try to address ADHD without medication when at all possible. We had some horrific experiences with meds. After many years of seeing Psychiatrists and psychologists I can only tell you to hang in there. I do not believe medication treats the root cause or effects of ADHD. Also this is a long road to travel and you will need much support. I dealt with this years ago when all this was very new. There is so much more out in the way of information now that should help guide you. Good luck! By the way my son is now 22 and in college. He is also very involved in body building and works out quite often which is great for an ADHDer.. Answered by Jacinta Girty 1 year ago.
