Hydrochloride is basically salt and can act as a diuretic causing you to urinate more frequently. It is a component of many drugs used as a binder and a way to eliminate the half-life of the drug. I cannot say with any certainty if Clonidine and Clonidine Hydrochloride (Clonidine HCL) is the same. It depends on the manufacturer and you should ask your pharmacist. They can give you a better answer than the Internet.

At one time I was taking the drug clonidine with one other drug and all worked out okay. Recently, my drug was changed to clonidine hydrochloride and and the same other drug, but I am having constant and uncontrollable urination day and night. Is the addition of the hydrochloride component causing the constant urination?
