  • My daughter goes to bed at 8 and we give her the Clonidine at 7:30. She is usually asleep by 8:15. Without the Clonidine, she is awake until 10-11 pm. Don't give it much earlier than 30 min before bedtime or he may fall asleep before its time.

  • I agree with ashisamom. My son took clonodine for tourette's before we tried intuniv. He was also on focalin for adhd, he took it in the morning, he got sleepy after around a half hour after clonodine at night. Do you give focalin when he wakes up? My son is 11. We moved to vyvanse because focalin was too much for him.
