Catapres How to Take

Catapres (Clonidine) belongs to the group of medications called antihypertensives or vascular stabilizers. It is used alone or in combination with thiazide diuretics (e.g., Hydrochlorothiazide) to treat high blood pressure. It is usually tried when other types of blood pressure medications are ineffective or cannot be used. Catapres (Clonidine) works by widening the blood vessels, which increases blood flow and lowers blood pressure.

Catapres (Clonidine) can also be used to relieve menopausal hot flashes when hormone replacement therapy is not needed or not desired. For hot flashes, Catapres (Clonidine) works by helping reduce the response of the blood vessels to stimuli that cause them to narrow and widen.

Catapres (Clonidine) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Catapres (Clonidine) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Catapres (Clonidine) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Catapres (Clonidine) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Catapres (Clonidine), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Catapres (Clonidine) without consulting your doctor.
