Hi,

I'm interested in trying Guanfacine (as monotherapy) for anxiety/ADHD, but I've read it can cause disruptions in sleep quality.

Has anyone experienced anything along those lines?

Thanks!

I have been taking guanfacine for almost a year now, and my sleep quality has only improved.

I sleep like a baby on a low (1mg) dose. I'm a naturally early riser and it has not impacted that routine either.

Clonidine is supposed to actually hurt the time you spend in your REM cycle, though I haven't tried it, apparently guanfacine is not supposed to have that effect.
