Clonidine withdrawal pregnancy

(1 Post)

Has anyone got experience of withdrawal for Clonidine due to pregnancy.
I take it for Tourette's syndrome and it helps with anxiety a lot. I wanted to come of before I got pregnant but the GP advised against this. He told me that as long as I am off it completely before the baby is born the baby will not be born addicted to it and I should keep taking it as long as I can.
Has anyone taken this while pregnant? I have read that there is a risk to the baby and this worries me but I can stop taking it all at once as that could be harmful. What should I do?
