@merkat30 - I took Clonidine many years ago and had to stop after 3 days. I was extremely sedated from it and during the third night I developed terrible supine hypertension, anxiety and feeling of impending doom. I had to wean off it quickly because I was so ill from it. I will never, ever take that again!

I had to stop it last year due to hypertensive rebound into crisis territory. It is recommended to first stop beta blockers if you are on one and I spent 2 weeks slowly lowering the dose, a quarter of a tablet at a time. I was miserable-tachy, tremulous, hot flashes, palpitations etc but didn’t suffer from everything you are describing. It was apparently, according to the pharmacist very important to stop the beta blocker first. Be very careful of the hypertensive rebound.
