      We started my son on clonidine about a week ago. The dr prescribed 0.1 mg that I cut in half and give him half in the morning and half in the evening. So far, he is sleeping much better and I don’t need to give him melatonin to fall asleep. When can I expect it to help with impulsivity? Thank yiu

      I haven’t heard of it reducing impulsivity, only hyperactivity. That doesn’t mean it can’t help with impulsivity, of course.

      Thanks. Any idea when I should see it working?

        I believe immediately. You are seeing that in the fact that it has improved sleep.
