Weaning off clonidine

Q: Why is my bp so high (190/89) when my med colodine was lowered from 0.03-0.02 and metropolol and benicar was added. Will it take time for my body to react?

A: I believe you meant Clonidine, not colodine. One of the side effects of sudden stopping Clonidine is very high blood pressure. Your doctor is slowly lowering your dose of Clonidine and starting different blood pressure medicines, metropolol and benicar. This is important to keep your blood pressure from getting dangerously high while your body adjusts to the changes.
