Not Medical Advice: Pill imprint U 135 has been identified as Clonidine hydrochloride 0.1 mg.
Clonidine is used alone or together with other medicines to treat high blood pressure (hypertension). Clonidine belongs to the class of medicines called antihypertensives. It works in the brain to change some of the nerve impulses.
As a result, the blood vessels relax and blood passes through them more easily, which lowers blood pressure. When the blood pressure is lowered, the amount of blood and oxygen going to the heart is increased.
This medicine will not cure your high blood pressure, but it does help control it. Therefore, you must continue to use it as directed if you expect to lower your blood pressure and keep it down. You might have to take high blood pressure medicine for the rest of your life.
