I received my first box of clonidine patches today. I opened the box to find 4 clonidine 0.3mg/24hr patches and 4 foam overlays (personally, I prefer occlusive dressings, but these work alright).
I placed roughly a third of a patch out of an abundance of caution and in seven days, I'll use the roughly 2/3 patch, then go to full patches.
When I started the pills, I had very little side effects, but I'm experiencing significantly more sedation than previously. Despite a reasonable amount of familiarity with this chemical, I'm a little freaked out.
Wish me luck...
