A description of the experience
Dexmedetomidine, sold under the trade names Precedex and Dexdor, among others, is an anxiolytic, sedative, and analgesic medication. Similar to clonidine, it is an agonist of α2-adrenergic receptors in certain parts of the brain Dexmedetomidine is notable for its ability to provide sedation without risk of respiratory depression (unlike other commonly used sedatives such as propofol, fentanyl, and midazolam) and can provide cooperative or semi-arousable sedation.
There are no absolute contraindications to the use of dexmedetomidine. Dexmedetomidine has a biphasic effect on blood pressure with decreased blood pressure observed at lower concentrations and elevated blood pressure at higher concentrations Rapid IV administration or bolus has been associated with slow heart rate (bradycardia) and low blood pressure (hypotension) due to peripheral α2-receptor stimulation.
