Clonidine belongs to the Anti-hypertensive medication class. It is generally used to treat hypertension, but it could also be used to manage other health problems like attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), opiate, nicotine, and alcohol addiction, menopausal flushes, spasticity, diarrhea, and some pain disorders. Clonidine has a half-life of roughly 5-16 hours and functions by activating alpha-2 adrenergic receptors.
It is commonly prescribed to aid with the withdrawal effects of opioids.
Clonidine inhibits the action of the sympathetic nervous system by blocking or inhibiting neurochemicals in the brain that cause its activation. Sweating, watery eyes, restlessness, and hot flushes are among the unpleasant symptoms of opioid detoxification. Clonidine has also been shown to help with anxiety and may possibly shorten the detox process.
Clonidine can aid with withdrawal symptoms of opioids, but it is not a cure or treatment for opioid addiction on its own.
When you stop taking clonidine, you will experience withdrawal symptoms. The intensity of clonidine withdrawal symptoms varies from patient to patient. That is why, when discontinuing medicine, patients are encouraged to seek professional medical help rather than relying on home care.
