Catapres-TTS Patch

Catapres-TTS (clonidine) is used to control high blood pressure.  But it also treats many other conditions.

In another thread, mitomac and Stallion pointed out several uses for clonidine that I was not aware of.  Apprently it's used for opiate withdrawal, alcohol withdrawal, ADHD etc.

Most uses are discussed in the previous thread, but you can find more information from Eckerd Drug Advisor:

Clonidine Consumer Info

Clonidine Professional Info
