Side Effects & Adverse Reactions

Not for human use. Keep this and all drugs out of the reach of children.

Do not use in horses intended for human consumption.

Although apparently deeply sedated, some horses may still respond to external stimuli with defensive movements (for example, kicking). Sedated horses are frequently ataxic. Routine safety measures should be used to protect practitioners and handlers.

Romifidine hydrochloride can be absorbed and may cause irritation following direct exposure to skin, eyes or mouth. In case of accidental eye exposure, flush with water for 15 minutes. In case of accidental skin exposure, wash with soap and water. Remove contaminated clothing. In case of accidental oral exposure or injection, seek medical attention. If irritation or other adverse reaction occurs (for example, sedation, hypotension, bradycardia), seek medical attention.

As with all injectable drugs causing profound physiological effects, precautions should be taken by practitioners to prevent accidental self-injection when handling and using filled syringes. Users receiving treatment for blood pressure abnormalities should take special precaution to avoid exposure to this product.
