View Full Version : Experiences with Clonidine

04-26-12, 12:25 PM
I've a ten-year old who's being treated for ADHD, OCD and has had issues with nail/cuticle pulling, hair twitching, lip biting, etc., - which has up till recently been successfully treated with Guanfancine (Tenex).

It seems that the effects of the Guanfacine are wearing mighty thin; not only a return of the nail picking and lip biting but has now developed a very noticable eye-movement tic.

The other day, at an OCD Parents Group meeting, another parent recommended Clonidine.

Anyone here who's had relevant experience with it? Could you compare and contrast its different forms (Catapres, Kapvay, Nexiclon XR)?

Much appreciated.
