Discussions that mention clonidine

Hi Mike,

It was my pharmacist & the directions that come with the drug (NOrvasc) that told me it was okay to stop the drug suddenly. It was on the weekend & I couldn't get hold of the Dr & the Dr. on call was no help. I didn't have any problem with getting off the drug. Sometimes one drug in a class or group will be slightly different than the others so this must be the case with Norvasc & CCB. Always check with your Dr. when possible or go to the ER & ask. Don't stop beta blockers or clonidine suddenly-go to the ER if you are taking these drugs & have a serious side effect. Fam
