    OK I have seen a few that have used Clonidine for sleep help. It also helps hypertension/high blood pressure, plus it is unscheduled. Thought I saw it bumped GH also, not sure. Anyway, as an occasional sleep aid-how would it work? Price seems right also.

    lmk, thanks, kmh

    It is an alpha2 agonist.



    It is likely to be very relaxing and anxiolytic. It should also reduce pain.



    I would be quite interested in feedback.

    The unfortunate problem with clonidine is that it almost completely prevents/blocks any REM sleep from occuring. Actually, the pupil shrinking and REM-inhibiting effects are the most conistently noted effects from this drug.



    The "sleep" induced by clonidine is anything but refreshing for the majority of users. The pain-killing effects are only really noticed when it is used to "augment" an individuals already existent opioid/opiate pain-killer use. Clonidine is definitely good for blunting the withdrawal from tranquilizers and opioids/opiates...



    Sure it works as a sedative/anxiolytic for most people, however, the almost complete lack of saliva/tears caused from only a .02mg tablet is extremely uncomfortable and makes use of "artificial saliva/tears" thru-out the day (very long duration of action) - almost a necessity. The decreased heart-rate/BP induced by clonidine tends to re-bound quite potently also - after only a few days/weeks of nightly use.



    This drug has many interesting and beneficial effects overall w/o a doubt. However, the negative effects are quite restrictive with using this med unfortunately...
