Do clonidine and Seroquel have similar mechanisms of action in doses for anxiety. Do they both block the action of stress hormones such as norepinephrine
My Dr. just put me on Clonidine to try and I am already am on Seroquel. I will post how it does. It is an older drug mostly for blood pressure does have off label uses for other things such as a calming effect.
I haven't taken Seroquel in many years. But I am in clonidine now. I have tried numerous other medications over the last year due to my debilitating anxiety and severe panic attacks. clonidine is the only things that completely takes my anxiety away. It takes about an hour to start working, but once it does I have no stress at all.
