been on cloniidine mg .1 for one week - sinus stopped up -cannot breath thru nose very well. been using saline nose spray which now seems to not be helping at all. Can I take Tylenol sinus congestion (night time) pills. also experiencing some sleeplessness at night. Very drowsy every day and dry mouth. Any suggestions?
I was on Clonidine for high blood pressure for over six months. I didn't experience the stuffy symptoms you had, but did experience sleeplessness. Clonodine didn't work for me. After an episode of VERY high blood pressure that put me in the hospital, they took me off Clonodine and put me on another med that did help. I would not use any decongestant if you have high blood pressure. It only makes your pressure go higher. My doctor recommends Benedryl. I use this at night to help me sleep and it does work. There are so many different meds for blood pressure and if I were you, I would ask my doctor for another one.
