ARKAMIN 0.1MG (100 mcg)
ARKAMIN 100 MCG TABLET belongs to the class of drugs known as ‘Antihypertensives,’ which are used to treat high blood pressure. ARKAMIN 100 MCG TABLET is also used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children aged 6 and up, either alone or in combination with other medications. Hypertension (high blood pressure) is a medical disorder in which the blood exerts an excessive amount of pressure on the walls of blood vessels, resulting in hypertension. It’s a common disorder that, if left untreated, can harm blood vessels, the brain, kidneys, heart, and other organs. ADHD is a condition in which a patient has trouble focusing, managing behaviors, and being quiet or still as compared to other people their age.
The ingredient ‘Clonidine’ in ARKAMIN 100 MCG TABLET relaxes and opens blood vessels, making it easier for the heart to flow blood to all regions of the body. This, in turn, helps people with high blood pressure lower their blood pressure and reduce their chance of having a heart attack or stroke in the future. Additionally, by altering the area of the brain that controls impulsivity and attention, ARKAMIN 100 MCG TABLET aids in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

Glossary of Diseases and Conditions
High blood pressure (hypertension) is a condition in which the pressure in the blood vessels (arteries) is abnormally high. Hypertension is caused by the blood exerting greater pressure on the walls of blood vessels. When the heart beats and when the heart rests, it creates a force in the blood vessels. Blood pressure is measured in systolic and diastolic readings. The pressure in the arteries while the heart beats or pumps blood is known as systolic pressure. The pressure in the arteries between heartbeats is known as diastolic pressure. A blood pressure monitor measures blood pressure in millimeters of mercury (mm of Hg) (sphygmomanometer). The normal blood pressure ranges from 90/60 to 120/80 mmHg. Headaches, dizziness, nosebleeds, visual abnormalities, chest pain, weakness, and dyspnea are all signs of high blood pressure (shortness of breath). The majority of the time, however, there are no indications or symptoms of hypertension.
ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Problem) is a mental health disorder that causes impulsive behavior and hyperactivity. ADHD patients have difficulty focusing their attention on a single subject or sitting still for extended periods of time. It usually starts in childhood and lasts till maturity. Hyperactivity and inadequate attention are two symptoms of ADHD.
CLONIDINE is an antihypertensive medication that relaxes and expands the blood arteries, making it easier for the heart to pump blood to all parts of the body. This aids in lowering blood pressure and lowering the risk of a heart attack or stroke. CLONIDINE aids in the treatment of ADHD by altering the area of the brain that regulates impulsivity and attention.
ARKAMIN 0.1MG TABLET may cause dry mouth as a side effect. Caffeine restriction, avoidance of smoking and mouthwashes containing alcohol, frequent water consumption, and eating sugar-free gum/candy may help to stimulate saliva and prevent mouth drying.
Please do not discontinue taking CLONIDINE without first visiting your doctor, since this could result in a blood pressure increase. Take CLONIDINE as directed by your doctor for as long as you need it. If you have any problems while using ARKAMIN 0.1MG TABLET, do not hesitate to contact your doctor.
CLONIDINE is used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children aged 6 and up, either alone or in combination with other medications. CLONIDINE should only be given to children if a doctor has recommended it.
ARKAMIN 0.1MG TABLET may cause diarrhea as a side effect. If you have diarrhea, it is best to drink plenty of water and eat plenty of fiber-rich foods. Consult your doctor if you notice blood in your stools (tarry stools) or if you have a lot of diarrhea. Do not self-medicate with anti-diarrheal medication.
Nightmares, upper respiratory tract infection (URTI), irritability, and sleeping problems are all common ARKAMIN 0.1MG TABLET side effects.
CLONIDINE can be taken up to 4 hours before surgery. It’s best if you don’t take it within 4 hours of your procedure. You can, however, immediately resume it following surgery.
