Clonidine
it just helps you sleep
no to drugs  |  March 26, 2014
When I started on Clonidine I pretty much became narcoleptic for a period of a few hours about 1.5-2 hours after taking it. There were times I'd literally fall asleep standing up at work, my coworkers kept taking pictures of me, haha. It got better after a couple weeks, but it was tough to work my way through. I'm on 1mg AM, 1mg PM. I work overnights and loved the AM pill as it'd knock me right out and I'd sleep great! Been on about 6 months now and it doesn't affect me in that regard at

I had the same issue when withdrawing from my fentanyl patches. Discuss this concern with your doctor as I did. I had the dose reduced to .1 mg from .2 mg. I don't know what breaking in half will do. It's an immediate release pill so it might leech too much medicine in your system too fast like with many other meds. Once I got used to the .1, I went back up to .2 (I also have high blood pressure). It also works like a charm getting rid of the stinging in my feet due to a spinal injury. G

Clonidine lowers your blood pressure, so you can become light headed. You probably have solved this, but if not try half and then have a few hours later.
