okay I am gonna do it, today is day 2 without any subs, I have some clonidine but how many miligrams am i so post to take?/
The recommended dosage of clonidine for the tablet form of this medication is 0.1 mg twice daily. If you are using the skin patch, your healthcare provider may recommend that you start with the clonidine-1 patch (applied once a week). In most cases, the recommended starting dose for use in an epidural is 30 mcg per hour, given continuously through an epidural infusion.
This is info available on the net, but it is strongly recommended that you should seek medical professional advice before taking this or any med., hope this helps?
Are you sure you don't mean 2mgs? Because .2mgs would be about 1/20 of one 2mg tablet of suboxine, and 2mgs is the smallest tablet you can get, as far as I know. If you actually mean .2mgs, then the amount that you have been taking is so negligible as to be almost sub-free, and you shouldn't have any major w/d. I'm not a doctor, I'm just speaking from experience of recently coming off of 2mgs a day.
hi sunshine42,did you cut a 2 mg pill into quaters cause that would be .5 or did you cut a 8mg pill into quarters,that would be 2mg.tell us how you got to the number .2 ? if you can check your blood pressure and tell us what it is. when you take the clonidine your gonna feel like everything is an effort.be careful standing and rising out of bed,you can feel light headed,and loose your balance.if you can get some anti diarrhea med it may help.stay away from caffine and too much sugar,it will help you sleep better.and don't forget your not in this alone,we here at drugs.com are all praying and pulling for you.good luck and GOD bless you... pete
