Should I take clonidine if my bp is 140/106 and my heart rate is 73?

Your blood pressure, especially Diastolic (bottom number) is too high. Clonidine is an excellent drug for lowering blood pressure and, unlike BetaBlockers, won’t lower your heart rate. It is the only medication that works for me personally.

Clonidine is very effective but actually , I don't think your bp is high enough for that monster drug. Mine was much higher then yours and my Cardiologist weaned me off from it. He said it was used as a last resort. I'm off from Clonidine now and doing ok... It can be difficult to wean off Clonidine so if you ever change, it's not usually a walk in the park to weaen off from this drug. .
