Catapres (Clonidine) FAQs

What is Catapres?

Clonidine (sold under the brand name Catapres) is a prescription antihypertensive drug that can help lower high blood pressure. It may be prescribed alone, or together with other medications.

In most cases, in addition to medication, medical providers also recommend lifestyle changes to help manage or treat hypertension (high blood pressure). For example, focusing on healthy eating, exercising, and reducing stress levels may help support maintaining a healthy blood pressure.

How does Catapres work?

Clonidine is part of a drug class called central alpha agonists. These drugs decrease the amount of certain chemicals in your blood that narrow blood vessels. This can help relax the blood vessels, allowing blood to pass through them more effectively. And that can lower your blood pressure and your risk of corresponding diseases, like strokes and heart attacks.

Clonidine is available as an oral tablet, usually taken twice a day, and as a transdermal patch. If you’re prescribed clonidine for high blood pressure, follow your medical provider’s instructions to ensure that the drug is safe and effective for you.

Can I get Catapres online?

Treating high blood pressure can be costly when it requires the use of medication. One way to decrease the cost is to purchase your medication online.

You can order clonidine through an online pharmacy if you have a prescription from a licensed medical professional. The online pharmacy will deliver your medication to your doorstep.

How much does Catapres cost?

How much clonidine costs depends on factors including your dosage strength, the pharmacy you use, how much you buy at once, and whether you have insurance.

Medication is often cheaper if you have medical insurance. Buying generic medication—which works the same way and has the same effects as brand-name medication— is another way to keep medical costs low. Your pharmacy may also have coupons to further reduce the cost. Lastly, clonidine may be cheaper if you purchase it online.

What does Catapres treat?

Clonidine is an antihypertensive drug used to treat high blood pressure and reduce the risk of medical conditions associated with high blood pressure, such as heart disease.

An extended-release form of clonidine sold by the brand Kapvay is sometimes used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

What are the side effects?

Clonidine may cause unwanted side effects such as:

  • Dry mouth
  • Dry eyes
  • Fatigue
  • Dizziness
  • Stomach discomfort
  • Constipation
  • Headaches
  • Irritability
  • Upper respiratory tract infections
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Nightmares

Your medical provider can help you determine whether the benefits of clonidine are worth the potential risks. Speak with your healthcare provider if you develop side effects that are troublesome or that interfere with your day-to-day life. They can help determine whether the effects are worth the benefit of the drug and, if needed, recommend another medication to help control your blood pressure.

Rarely, more serious side effects may occur when taking this medication. Seek emergency medical care if you experience any of the follow while taking clonidine:

  • Extreme changes in your heart rate
  • Increased, then decreased, blood pressure
  • Dizziness upon standing that doesn’t go away
  • Passing out
  • Chest pain
  • Hallucinations
  • Slowed breathing or difficulty breathing

Call 911 or go to the emergency room if you experience signs of an allergic reaction such as swelling, hives, or difficulty breathing. Never take clonidine if you’re allergic to any of the ingredients in the drug.

Precautions and risks of Catapres

Before taking clonidine, tell your medical provider about your medical history, including any other medications or supplements that you take. Clonidine can interact negatively with other drugs. It also may not be safe for people with heart rhythm problems or kidney disease.

Don’t stop taking clonidine without speaking to a medical provider first. Doing so could increase your blood pressure to an unsafe level or increase your risk of other medical concerns. This is especially risky if you’ve been taking clonidine for a long period of time, or if you take a beta blocker together with the clonidine. Always keep enough of your prescription on hand and make sure to get refills in a timely manner so that you don’t run out of the medication.

Because clonidine can cause drowsiness and dizziness, avoid other substances that make you tired, such as alcohol and marijuana. Be extra cautious with driving and operating machinery when you take clonidine, especially if you take it with another drug or substance that makes you feel tired.

Tell your medical provider if you’re pregnant or planning to become pregnant soon; it’s possible that clonidine may harm a fetus. If you’re breastfeeding, speak to your medical provider about how clonidine may affect your breastmilk. Clonidine may reduce milk supply in some people.

Lastly, tell your medical provider that you take clonidine if you’re having surgery. It’s possible clonidine may interfere with anesthesia during surgical procedures.

Do I need a prescription?

Clonidine is a prescription drug, which means it’s not available over the counter.

If you have high blood pressure, speak to a medical provider about your treatment options. They can help you determine whether clonidine, or another blood pressure drug, is the best option for improving your health.
