ANTIDIABETICS AND CLONIDINE

A Clonidine may possibly suppress the signs and symptoms of hypoglycaemia in
diabetics. Marked hyperglycaemia occurred in a child using insulin when clonidine was given. However, the effect of clonidine on carbohydrate metabolism appears to be variable, as other reports have described both increases and decreases in blood glucose levels.
Warn all patients that some of the normal premonitory signs of hypoglycaemia may not appear. Suspect an interaction if disturbances in the control of diabetes occur in patients given clonidine.
