    Clonidine was RXed for me at .1mg to take at night due to a recently diagnosed complex dysautonomia.

    I’m both curious to try it (since my heart at times pounds away at night) and concerned (since I sense that kicking into sympathetic drive is a compensatory mechanism vital to my body surviving the ravages of ME).

    Have any of you taken it? If yes: at what dosage? How did it affect your ME? Did you notice side effects?

    There was a clinical trial some years back. Did not help ME but there is no telling with an individual. I tried it to no useful effect some years past.

    I did read about the trial just today. It’s okay with me if it were to have no effect. My concern is more that it could have detrimental effect. Did you have any difficulty coming off it?

    No issues with getting off it that I can recall, but my memory is fubar these days.
