Tenex , also commonly referred to as guanfacine, is an alpha agonist used in the treatment of high blood pressure.
This drug works by decreasing your heart rate and calming the blood vessels so the blood can move more easily through the body.
Tenex is taken orally in the form of a tablet. It is usually taken once per day, typically around the time you go to bed.
Common side effects associated with Tenex include dry mouth, dizziness, drowsiness, constipation, fatigue, headache, decreased sexual ability, upset stomach and vomiting. If the side effects do not go away or appear to be getting worse, contact a medical professional for assistance.
Tenex is occasionally prescribed to treat migraine headaches and drug withdrawal symptoms, as directed by your doctor.
