What if I miss my dose of clonidine (Catapres)?

If you miss a dose of clonidine (Catapres), take the missed dose as soon as you remember it and continue the prescription directions. But if you are close to the next dose, skip the missed dose and wait for the next dose. Do not double-up on your doses. This might lead to severe side effects and/or overdose.
