    Catapres -TTS-1 patch

    What do people take catapres-TTS-1 patch for

    This is an extended release clonidine patch. It is primarily used as an antihypertensive drug (for high blood pressure), in addition to other drugs (rarely on it's own). It may also help potentiate or improve the effectiveness of antispasticity drugs such as baclofen and tizanidine.

    It is also used, interestingly, for smoking cessation and assisting in easing the symptoms of drug withdrawal with benzos and opioids.
