Question Clonidine???

Anyone out there use this? I was just given it this week to try it out. I was on Premarin and wanted to get off HRT. My hot flashes and night sweats are horrible so the doc suggested I use Clonidine.
I've only used it 3 times so far.....wanted to get some thoughts from other ladies who have used it.
Thx

Re: Clonidine???

Hi Angie,

I was given it once at a doctors visit when my blood pressure was extremely high. It can dramatically drop your blood pressure and if taken and quit suddenly can cause a high increase in BP. I never would use it for meno symptoms. There has to be something else that you can take.

Get a second opinion.
