Hi.

I'm having a tough time locating the literature that would be sufficient to show your doctor.

I'll keep looking.

Was ADD or ADHD ever suspected with you?

Do you suffer from fear, anxiety, or panic attacks?

Keep in mind that clonidine is well known to be depressogenic. However, there may be things about your individual biology that produce paradoxical reactions to NE alpha2 drugs. Guanfacine is less depressogenic and less sedating than clonidine. Both drugs are now used to treat ADD and ADHD. They serve to "calm down" NE activity in the prefrontal cortex (PFC).
