Re: Anyone taking clonidine or using clonidine patches?
I have experience with both the clonidine patches and pills. The patches didn't work so well and they gave me some itching and rash at the patch site, but the pills bring my bp down fast.
I too am having bp spikes, but they didn't start until after I added Toprol (beta blocker). I am still trying to get over Toprol, but the bp spikes are not as bad as when i was on it. So, in my case I suspect it is the Toprol causing my spikes, not the clonidine.
