    I urge you to contact your doctor about stopping the Clonidine! Please, Capricorn, dont suddenly stop this medicine without working with your doctor! Do not stop taking this medication suddenly without first talking to your doctor! Stopping this medication suddenly can cause nervousness, agitation, headache, tremors, severe high blood pressure, or life-threatening symptoms! Talk with your doctor about how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when you stop taking clonidine!RxListhttp://www!rxlist!com/catapres-drug-patient!htmYour frustration is coming through loud and clear, I am so sorry, hang in there, you can work through this with your doctor! You can be safely weaned off the Clonidine, but it is important that this is done in a way that reduces the risk of your blood pressure shooting up sky high, and reduces the risk of other side effects of coming off Clonidine!There are reports of rapid weight gain for people taking Clonidine, but it is not the most frequent side-effect! This is one of those times when you need to advocate for yourself with your doctor! Ask your pharmacist to help you find and print out information about Clonidine and weight gain! If you do internet searches, then be sure you are using reliable sources, Im posting a couple of links for you! Take this information to your doctor, and remind your doctor that weight gain isnt great for people with high blood pressure! Clonidine does not cause weight gain for everyone who takes it, but it does seem to cause increased appetite, lower metabolism, and other things that lead to rapid weight gain in some people! The weight gain from Clonidine can be delayed, which fits with what you are describing! Something for you to keep in mind is that the side effects from Clonidine could be related to the dosage, the amount of the medicine! So, your doctor might suggest a lower dose, and that could be all it takes for your urge to eat and cravings to go away! Be prepared for a bit of work to get the weight back off! I know it is hard, my heart goes out to you!
