Hi Everyone,

I was on Clonidine .1mg for over a year. I never had any problems with it and it did bring my BP down. My doctor used it as a last resort though because of some of the side effects. It did cause me to have a dry mouth for awhile and I had a few nightmares while I was on it but they didn't bother me enough to stop the drug.

In addition to the Clonidine I was also on Hyzaar 100/25mg, Norvasc 10mg and Lasix 40mg. The only one I really had a problem with was the Norvasc. It caused my legs, feet and ankles to swell up and I was gaining weight. However I did end up in the hospital last September because I was dehydrated and my bp was too low so all my medications have been changed.

It took almost 2 weeks before the swelling from the Norvasc went away. For the first time in over 2 yrs I was able to see my ankles again.

I would take Clonidine again beforeI ever took Norvasc again.
