Hey could anyone help me out about this medication. I read good reviews about this and I was wondering if this would b the best thing for me. I know it's like a BP med n I do have low blood pressure so would this dramatically effect me during my withdrawal. I've been on opioids for over two years now and I'm super scared for withdrawal. Anything would help, n could I go to a free clinic or anything like that. Any input would b greatly appreciated
Catapres is used to help individuals undergoing withdrawal. While it might make you light headed for the first few doses, it should help with the withdrawal symptoms.
It is a useful and beneficial medication for many individuals attempting to get off opioid medications.
Talk to your doctor should you have any concerns or problems.
