    1. Clonidine is associated with diminished susceptibility to hypocapnic central apnoea without significant effect on ventilation or upper airway mechanics.

      In other words, clonidine elevates CO2. I'm not yet sure whether this is a good thing.

    1. HGH response to clonidine was not correlated with plasma levels of noradrenaline, serum cortisol, free fatty acids, or blood glucose.

      That's surprising, but it does not necessarily mean that the mechanism is not the lowering of FFAs. Clonidine does lower FFAs, but individual responses to FFA reduction may vary in magnitude.
