The use of clonidine for severe and intractable sleep problems in children with neurodevelpmental disorders. A case series
This paper reports on the use of clonidine for the treatment of severe sleep problems associated with behavioural difficulties in children with neurodevelopmental disabilities. Data were obtained from reviewing the case notes of a series of six children with neurodevelopmental disorders of different nature and severity, presenting with problematic sleep. All children in this group showed maintained improvements in their sleep pattern following the use of clonidine with only mild side-effects reported.
