Dexmedetomidine hydrochloride is a imidazole acquired that is an agonist of ADRENERGIC ALPHA-2 RECEPTORS. It is closely-related to MEDETOMIDINE, which is the racemic anatomy of this compound.
Dexmedetomidine Hydrochloride is the hydrochloride alkali anatomy of dexmedetomidine, an imidazole acquired and alive d-isomer of medetomidine with analgesic, anxiolytic and allaying activities. Dexmedetomidine selectively binds to and activates presynaptic alpha-2 adrenoceptors amid in the brain, thereby inhibiting the absolution of norepinephrine from synaptic vesicles. This leads to an inhibition of postsynaptic activation of adrenoceptors, which inhibits affectionate activity, thereby arch to analgesia, balance and anxiolysis.
