Clonidine Hydrochloride (100mcg)
CLONIDIME is a medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension) by reducing the levels of certain chemicals in the body that constrict blood vessels and increase heart rate. It is a centrally acting alpha agonist, which means it works by affecting the central nervous system to lower blood pressure.
CLONIDIME is typically taken as a tablet, with the dose and frequency determined by the healthcare provider. It may be used alone or in combination with other blood pressure medications.
Common side effects of CLONIDIME may include dry mouth, drowsiness, dizziness, and constipation. In rare cases, serious side effects such as low blood pressure, slowed heart rate, and allergic reactions may occur. Abruptly stopping clonidine hydrochloride can lead to rebound hypertension, so it is important to follow the healthcare provider's instructions carefully when discontinuing this medication.
CLONIDIME  may interact with other medications, including blood pressure medications, antidepressants, and opioid pain medications, so it is important to inform your healthcare provider of all medications and supplements you are taking before starting treatment with CLONIDIME.
CLONIDIME  is also sometimes used off-label to treat other conditions, such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and anxiety, under the guidance of a healthcare provider.
