Clonidine-induced vasoconstriction in awake volunteers.

PMID:  11473842     Owner:  NLM     Status:  MEDLINE    
IMPLICATIONS: IV clonidine, at doses that decrease blood pressure, causes arterial vasoconstriction in awake subjects. These data suggest that an alpha-2 agonist with a high alpha-2a/alpha-2b selectivity should provide more profound sedative and analgesic effects with less undesirable vasoconstrictive effects.
