Discussions that mention clonidine

Two good references for these drugs are the Package Insert (a sheet of very small print) & the Nurses' PDR. You may have to go to several pharmacies to find the Pkg Insert because it is usually thrown away. The Nurses' PDR
contains all the important details for taking these drugs safely. I've had my issues with my Dr. concerning withdrawal from meds. I just flat out told her I was going to follow the package directions for starting drugs & stopping drugs unless there is a very good reason not too.

I got into trouble once when she told me to stop Clonidine suddenly to start another drug. I lasted one day in withdrawal. It took me two tries & two months to get off of it.
