Has anyone used Clonidine for Separation anxiety?

Has anyone out there used Clonidine for separation anxiety? we are using it now with Django only on our evening departures. The behaviorist thinks his SA has come back due to his age and although we have used training methods in the past to overcome SA, it won't cut it this time. So, we are on Clonidine.

He has had some weird side effects in the middle of the night only of course on the evenings we give it to him. Wanted to see if any one on the forum had any experience with this medication. For the record, it works well but as usual, I hate giving him more medication.

anxiety meds can work for dogs. The key is to find which ones do. The only case I am aware of didn't work for that particular dog. Glad you are talking with a vet behaviorist. That is the only type of vet in my opinion , when it comes to behavioral related drugs are concerned.
