Thank you Shoreline and Arranger
I was on clonidine a few years ago to help with anxiety and thought that it would help for additional coverage to my pain meds (which are fairly low, but need to be increased I believe) but wasn't sure if it was considered a narcotic type med.
I asked my physiatrist about it today and they said that they typically only prescribe it for opiate withdrawals. My problem really is that I need something stronger than what they're giving me but they don't want to prescribe anything stronger or really even up my current dose (15mg hydro 4 times per day). So I'm heading for proper PM but I'm pretty sure it'll take me a while to get in. So I'm stuck at my current dose for the time being and thought that the clonidine might help with the stress and tension that I get right now. I didn't want to ask for something if it was out of line.
