 Clonidine change

I want to get on a different BP medication but want to continue
using the clonidine I'm on now as it has cured my problems with
insomnia. The clonidine makes me much too lethargic during the day.

I'd like to continue using a single .1 to .2 mg clonidine before
bed but for {*filter*} pressure would like to try something else in
a one a day tablet.

I've heard beta blockers should not be taken with clonidine?

What types of BP medications would be safe to use in conjunction
with the clonidine that I'll take at night?

Are ace inhibitors ok, etc?

Thanks.

How about talking to your doctor? That is what he or she is paid for?

We don't know you medical history. (S)he does.

what does your doctor think about that?

not necesssarily true; depending upon your medical history, pulse rate, etc.
many patients take both together, safely.

again, depending upon your history, renal function, etc. etc. sure.

Thanks....Of course I have every intention of talking to my Doctor. Just
would like to be as informed as possible before I see him.

In fact, that is exactly WHY I asked.

Thanks for your help Beachhouse and your kind response.

I have to say....
We should all talk to each other as though we're talking to each
other face to face.

Think about it.

Not like they sometimes do in my neck of the woods.  I for one enjoy not
having to say "And my name is not 'LADY',...it's 'Doctor G. to you!" when I
am here.

Well, for starters, I've been on clonidine with added diuretic, calcium
channel blockers, ACE inhibitors, angiotensin II receptor blockers. Lots to
choose from, and lots of different {*filter*} within each of those classes.
Mixing a beta blocker with clonidine, while possible, is probably not
advisable if it can be avoided, because both have CNS depressant effects to
some degree. The best solution is to not be on clonidine at all though.
Probably the single most hated BP med by people who have been on it!
