Were you looking for information about Clonidine? Clondine is a common misspelling of clonidine.
Healthcare providers often prescribe clonidine hydrochloride (Catapres®, Catapres-TTS®, Duraclon®, Kapvay™, Nexiclon® XR) for the treatment of high blood pressure. The medicine comes as a tablet, skin patch, or epidural (the continuous epidural infusion is used in combination with opiates for treating severe pain in people with cancer). One form is approved to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
Although most people tolerate the medication well, as with any medicine, side effects are possible. Potential side effects include drowsiness, dry mouth, and headaches.
