I was prescribed Clonidine for blood pressure spikes at times & eventually advised to take it nightly at bedtime. I’ve tried weaning off it twice because of some of the side effects, and immediately have very high spikes in blood pressure (higher than I ever had prior to adding Clonidine) and headache. This drug is difficult to discontinue. I’m also on Propranolol, a beta blocker. I’m sorry I ever agreed to take Clonidine. The pharmacist told me today that it sometimes takes people 4 months to discontinue Clonidine. Have any of you attempting to discontinue Clonidine had this experience? Thanks
