Guanabenz (pronounced GWAHN-a-benz, sold under the trade name Wytensin) is an alpha agonist of the alpha-2 type that is used as an antihypertensive drug. It is used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension).
Guanabenz can make one drowsy or less alert, therefore driving or operating dangerous machinery is not recommended.
