Even though clonidine poisoning has been repeatedly reported in last decade, but in recent past there is paucity of this, especially in a scenario of developing countries like India. We report a toddler with clonidine poisoning who developed lethargy, respiratory depression, and hypotension following accidental ingestion of 0.2 mg clonidine. The toddler also developed myocardial ischemia due to hypotension and recovered with due supportive care.
