Clonidine is a very versatile compound in the sense that it is used for all the following reasons:
1.It is an alpha-2 adrenergic receptor agonist, which is basically saying that it is able to help chronic pain.
2.It also has a calming effect on the human body, therefore it may also help with anxiety or ADHD. (Clonidine is not a nootropic per se, but it is sometimes used for individuals with ADHD to help with symptoms such as hyperactivity, impulsiveness, and sleep difficulties)
3.It is also used to treat high blood pressure, as it helps decrease a person’s heart rate and relaxes blood vessels which enable blood to flow easier.
