About Dexit 100Mcg/1Ml Inj

Dexit 100Mcg/1Ml Inj belongs to the group of sedatives used to sedate patients in acute settings such as the ICU, during surgical procedures and in those who require a mechanical ventilator. Sedation is defined as a state of relaxation, drowsiness or sleep.

Dexit 100Mcg/1Ml Inj may cause certain common side effects such as a slow heart rate, a change in blood pressure and an alteration in breathing pattern.
