Clonidine is a medication used to treat a variety of conditions such as high blood pressure, ADHD, anxiety disorders, and opioid withdrawal. While it can be habit-forming, the risk of addiction is generally considered low when it is used as directed by a healthcare professional. However, like any medication, it can be abused or misused, which can increase the risk of addiction. It’s important to use clonidine only as directed and under the supervision of a healthcare professional.
