Drug Mode of Action ::
Clonidine stimulates alpha-2 receptors in brain stem which results in reduced sympathetic outflow from the CNS and a decrease in peripheral resistance leading to reduced BP and pulse rate. It does not alter normal haemodynamic response to exercise at recommended dosages.
Drug Interactions ::
Hypotensive action may be potentiated by diuretics and vasodilators. Effects of clonidine antagonised by TCAs and centrally-acting alpha-blockers. May enhance toxicity due to digitalis, lithium. May antagonise oral hypoglycaemics. Potentially Fatal: Hypnosedatives, antihistamines and alcohol may cause excessive drowsiness in patients on clonidine. Withdrawal of clonidine in patients receiving noncardioselective ?-blockers may result in rebound BP. Acute severe hypotension following concomitant administration of clonidine and chlorpromazine or haloperidol.
