View Full Version : Clonidine vs Guanfacine

I've been taking clonidine for many years now.

But it messes with both my working memory, just making me a little fuzzy headed, and sleep.. which studies have now confirmed.. it actually decreases the percentage of sleep spent in the REM cycle. Guanfacine isn't supposed to have those issues so I really want to switch and try it.

Would like to hear if anyone else has tried both and what your experience has been.

This is and old thread but I tried both Gaunfacine and Intiniv and they both worked great at first, I was calm, I remember, and focused but the side effects made me quit taking it. I found another thread on it that I started that has a more detailed description from early 2017
