Catapres Uses:

Catapres is prescribed for blood hypertension. It is effective when used alone or with other blood hypertension medications. Doctors also prescribe Catapres for alcohol, nicotine, or benzodiazepine (tranquilizer) withdrawal; migraine headaches; smoking cessation programs; Tourette's syndrome (tics and uncontrollable utterances); narcotic/methadone detoxification; premenstrual tension; and diabetic diarrhea.

Catapres Dosage:

Adults : The usual starting dose is 0.1 mg, twice a day (usually in the morning and at bedtime). The regular dose of Catapres is determined by increasing the daily dose by 0.1 mg at weekly intervals until the desired response is achieved. A larger portion of the increased dose can be taken at bedtime to reduce potential side effects of drowsiness and dry mouth that may appear when you begin taking this drug. The most common effective dosages range from 0.2 mg to 0.6 mg per day divided into smaller doses. The maximum effective dose is 2.4 mg per day; however, this dose is not usually prescribed.
