> Tenex and Clonidine are also used for hyperactivity in ADHD. Tenex is more selective for the presynaptic alpha-2 noradrenergic feedback receptor and is not thought to be sedating like Clonodine (it is much cleaner). Clonidine is dirtier. Tenex is not a powerhouse BP med, but may be a helpful adjunct in psychiatry.

Hmmmmmmm Im no expert at all on tenex and clonidine. I know I was on one of these, clonidine I think, in the hospital for a few days. I barely remember any of it cause I was so drugged was just a blur. Anyway, everytime they gave me a clonidine Id fall asleep it was like the dirtiest, sedating drug. Later they switched me over to a modern class blood pressure med, an ACE inhibitor Prinivil. Thats when I finally started feeling normal...relaxed again. ACE Inhibitors rock...clonidine sucks hind tit as far as Im concerned.

Clonidine/Tenex might have some obscure uses in psychiatry, but my attitude is you can have these drugs.

BTW...did you know there is an ACE Inhibitor called captopril that is reported to have some mood elevating/antidepressant qualities? ACE Inhibitors have good side effect profiles.
