RE: clonidine

I have been taking it for over 2 years. I believe mine are .1mg. I take one in the morning and and 1 before bed. I don't notice the side effects anymore. Also I take 2 tbsp of flax meal, mixed in a little juice, morning and night. Combination of the two really help. My menopause was chemo in duced and I take hormone blockers. Night time is worse. I think they are not as bad during the day due to being busy and occupied. Good luck!
