    Re: what reason for Clonidine not lowering my blood pressure

    Two possible reasons:

    1. You need to increase your dose with your Dr's permission of course. This is a drug that one's body gets used to so one has to have the dose increased every now & the. Evenually you reach the highest dose & have to go to another b/p med.

    2.) You could be having a paradoxical reaction to Clonidine. That's where Clonidine raises the b/p instead of lowing the b/p.

    I was on Clonidine for two yrs. It is very addictive & hard to stop.
