What is Clonidine?
Clonidine is a prescriptional anti-hypertensive drug. It is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), prevent strokes, heart attacks and kidney problems. Clonidine is often prescribed alone or with other medications for the treatment of blood pressure.
Clonidine is used to treat hypertension, preventing strokes, heart attacks and kidney associated problems. Clonidine works by lowering natural occurring chemicals in the body that constricts your blood vessels. This, in turn, allows blood vessels to dilate so that blood can flow more easily. It also decreases the load on the heart.
Clonidine is mainly used in the following conditions:
- High blood pressure
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (For people are aged 6-18 years)
- Heart attacks
