This medicine is authorised for use in the European Union.


Dexmedetomidine Accord is a medicine used to sedate (calm or make sleepy) adults in the following settings:

  • in hospital intensive care units to bring about a light level of sedation in which the patient can still respond to verbal stimulation (corresponding to a score of between 0 and -3 on the Richmond Agitation-Sedation Scale);
  • before or during diagnostic or surgical procedures where the patient remains awake (awake sedation).

Dexmedetomidine Accord contains the active substance dexmedetomidine.

Dexmedetomidine Accord is a ‘generic medicine’. This means that Dexmedetomidine Accord contains the same active substance and works in the same way as a ‘reference medicine’ already authorised in the EU called Dexdor.
