Uses
Catapres (Clonidine Hydrochloride) is known as a centrally acting alpha agonist hypotensive agent which is indicated for the treatment of hypertension. Its mode of action when used for lowering blood pressure involves stimulating alpha receptors in the brain. As a direct result of this, nervous signals sent out by the brain which constrict the blood vessels are reduced, leading to a drop in high blood pressure. Some doctors have also prescribed it for off label uses. Disorders for which it has been the subject of medical research include sleep problems, insomnia, anxiety, smoking cessation, alcohol withdrawal, rosacea, restless leg syndrome, migraine, hot flushes in menopausal women, Tourette's syndrome and other disorders.

Dosage and Administration
Catapres (Clonidine Hydrochloride) tablets contain 150mcg of medicine. Changes to the dosage regimen will be made by your doctor in accordance with how the blood pressure responds to medical treatment. The doctor in charge of medical treatment will be in charge of determining the correct dosage and frequency of administration in all cases and patients are required to fully comply with all instructions their doctor gives to them. It is a common practice for patients to be directed to commence treatment with a low dosage. Depending on the doctor's opinion, the dosage may be increased (however the patient must never increase the dosage unless specifically ordered to do so by a doctor).

Side effects
Some patients who use Catapres (Clonidine Hydrochloride) might experience side effects which may be attributed to the medicine, including:

  • Thirst
  • Reduced libido
  • Nasal stuffiness
  • Soreness affecting the ears
  • Fever which is not serious in nature

Side effects different to those listed here may also be experienced by patients. Always make your doctor aware of any reactions which occur. Reactions considered to be serious in nature will need treatment as soon as possible. Examples may include sudden body weight changes, problems related to urination, shortness of breath, hallucinating, feeling confused and other reactions that have not been mentioned here.

Precautions
This medicine might cause the eyes to become dry. If you wear contact lenses, ask your doctor what to do should this occur.

Should medical treatment need to be discontinued, it is likely that the doctor will recommend slow reduction of the dosage instead of sudden cessation.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Catapres (Clonidine Hydrochloride) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.

This medication may not be safe for all patients. Before you begin using it always disclose the following to your doctor:

  • If you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • If you suffer from any allergies.
  • If you suffer from any other health conditions or illnesses.
  • If you are using any other medicine (including all non-prescription).
  • If you are using any supplements, vitamins, or herbal products of any kind.
