Romifidine is a novel tranquilizer or sedative that has recently become available in the U.S. Romifidine is in the same chemical family as xylazine and detomidine and is effective for longer periods. Horses appear less ataxic or wobbly when this drug is used, in comparison to horses given xylazine or detomidine. Romifidine Hydrochloride 1% by NexGen may be used as a tranquilizer or sedative during radiographs or lameness examinations. It can also be used as a pre-anesthetic drug to calm horses before injectable or gas inhalation anesthesia is given.
