Transdermal delivery of the alpha 2-agonist clonidine does not alter airways responses to inhaled histamine or methacholine.

Abstract

Previous studies have reported that the inhalation of the alpha 2-agonist clonidine decreases airways reactivity. Other studies have shown that oral doses of clonidine acutely increase airways reactivity to histamine, but not to methacholine. Recently, a transdermal clonidine delivery system (TTS) has been approved for use, and there is an increasing… (More)
