Re: how long does side effects ofclonidine last?

I took Clonidine for two yrs. Did you just drop Clonidine? Are you on any other med to replace it? Why did you stop Clonidine?

Stopping Clonidine suddenly is dangerous. It can cause rebound hypertension which means one's b/p can rise higher than it was before you started taking Clonidine. Of course, that would put you at risk for a stroke or heart attack at the very least.

It took me two months & two difficult tries to stop Clonidine. It was nerve racking to say the least. I stopped Clonidine because of all the side effects. Fam

I hated Clonidine, it fried my brain and made it impossible for me to sleep. I do NOT recommend this drug.
