My 4yo son has started taking Clonidine to assist with severe sleep disorder as his Melatonin became ineffective after 2.5 years. He has autism and severe developmental delays. I have noticed his night sweating, which Clonidine theoretically reduces, has actually increased to the point his pillow and top become drenched. Is this a concern?
Other background info:
Just before taking the clonidine he had started having seizures in his sleep, he still wakes in a panic but goes back to sleep again. I am unsure but I think the clonidine is reducing his tendency to convulsions as he is getting the sleep he needs.
Much more alert and happy and attentive the next day...
Sweating has me perplexed
