Clonidine Dizziness Causes and Reviews


When you're dizzy, you may feel lightheaded, woozy, or disoriented. If you feel like you or the room are spinning, you have vertigo. These feelings may make you lose your balance.

Dizziness can have many different causes. A sudden drop in blood pressure or being dehydrated can make you dizzy. Many people feel lightheaded if they get up too quickly from sitting or lying down. Certain medicines and problems with your inner ear may cause Dizziness. So can motion sickness. Sometimes Dizziness can be a symptom of other disorders.

As people get older, they may have more health problems and take more medicines. This makes them more likely to have problems with Dizziness and balance.

Dizziness usually gets better by itself or is easily treated. If you are dizzy often, you should see your health care provider to find the cause.

Clonidine Dizziness Reviews

Mon, 07 May 2012

prescribed Clonidine 2 months ago for hot flushes due to the menopause. I am taking 25mcg twice a day as I cnnot tolerate the advised dose of 50mcg twice a day, but this lower dose has stopped the flushes. Infortunately I have been perpetually cold and have become really irritable. Is this a drug reaction or more symptoms of the menopause?

Sun, 22 May 2011

i am feeling drowsy,weak, and my heart is racing. is that suppose to happen?

Wed, 28 Dec 2011

I take only a portion of a 0.1 mg Clonidine once a day. Since I have been taking this medicine, the have been times that my skin feels that needles are sticking in it---this is all over my body. Has anyone else had this happen? I don't know for sure this is from this medicine, but it started shortly after I started taking it.

Mon, 01 Jun 2009
I take 0*1 mg Clonidine for high BP and have the sensation that my esophagus or chest muscles are spasming. Also my heart rate is accelerated. Are these expected side effects of this medication.
Sun, 15 Nov 2009
I just started on Clonidine for excessive sweating of the scalp and face, but also for insomnia. I had to take .3 mg to get sleepy. I woke up this morning with several canker like sores on the inside of my lips. Anyone else had this happen? I also use a cpap machine and am on other medications.
Mon, 16 Nov 2009
rashes, itch, soreness, pain
Wed, 17 Mar 2010
i started with taking 1 at bedtime .1mg then bp went up then went to .1 4 per day didn't last then tried Transdermal system this didn't stick to my skin result no medicine delivered i went thru withdraw ?
Fri, 30 Jul 2010
head, ears, throat, too tired, hate to take it.....Dr. said it is a nasty pill but still prescribed it. also, constipation/ loose stools. stomach discomfort....leg / foot spasms at night
Fri, 30 Jul 2010
I find this medication terrible. I dont know about anyone else but I have found that my body has become addictived to this drug. I have only been on this drug since June 18, 2010. I am on the patch 2mg plus one 1 mg tablet 2x per day (total of 4mg) If I do not take this mediction exactly within one hour before it wears of I start to go trough withdrawls. My head get tight my body starts to shake and I start to have a feeling of doom.When this first happen to me I went to the Emergency Room because I did not know what was happening to me. They discharged me because My blood pressure was not that high. Lucky for me My doctor's office was accross the street. I went to see him. He told me that this was one of the side effects of the drug. I told him that I could not live this way. He said this feeling would eventually go away but I had to stay on this drug because when you dont take this drug your blood pressure could spike very high. I was devastated to find that I was taking a drug that could potentially kill me if not taken timely.I have told the doctor that he had to find a way to get me off this medication. I can not function on this med. My vision is getting worse, I have difficulty concentrating, I am extremely aggitated and nervous all the time not to mention that I am so tired I can barely walk a block. I recently spoke with two different doctors who told me that I should not have been put on this med alone. I am so frustrated I dont know what to do. No one seem to be able to help me. Am I doomed to be this sick the reat of my life or is there something that can be done. Sincerely, Hopeless
