My 5 year old son is adhd and the meds he takes makes him angry so the doctor give him clonodine for it i have never heard of taking blood pressure meds for anger!!Answer Question
if the meds he takes are making him angry they need to change his meds, not give him more to counteract them. I would look for another doctor and get a 2nd opinion. My son has aspergers not ADHD but his friend does have ADHD and one of the meds made him suicidal and literally psychotic.

I would not allow my child on this medication. I am not one who is antimedication when it is needed. In fact, I have encouraged some parents to consider the benefits of specific therapies involving medications. I actually have witnessed very negative effects of this type of combination of the medication you ask of and pairing it with an ADHD med. As a matter of fact, in one country they do not due to the high risk of death. What happens is some ADHD meds speed up the heart rate and this med slows it down causing the heart to get confused and then just stop. Cholodin is used in adults for blood pressure medications. In a child it also brings there blood pressure down, causing them to be "calmer." In one case I was directly involved in a child was a literal zombie in school. I am all for meds as a person in the medical field. And I know many drs who have perscribed the drug in question.
