My wife has been on Clonidine ).2 mg for several years. She has had many bad side effects Nightmares, dry eye and mouth and others. She also takes two other meds for high bloodpressure. Nadolol (she has non-alcoholic seriosis of liver) and benicar Last week our Doctor suggested to go off Clonidine by lower the dose to 0.1 mg for three days and then stopping.
