No, clonidine is not the same class as Klonopin.
Clonidine is a centrally acting alpha-agonist hypotensive, which lowers blood pressure by decreasing the levels of certain chemicals in your blood. This allows your blood vessels to relax and your heart to beat more slowly and easily.
Klonopin is in a group of drugs called benzodiazepines. Clonazepam affects chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced and cause anxiety.
Klonopin is used to treat seizure disorders or panic disorder.
