What Is Tranq (Xylazine)?

What Is Tranq (Xylazine)?

Tranq was first made in 1962 by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals. It’s designed to be used as a central nervous system depressant. Veterinarians regularly use it to tranquilize (sedate), relieve pain, or as a muscle relaxant for animals like dogs, cats, and horses. It’s not FDA-approved for use in humans.

It’s typically sold as a clear liquid. In animals, the drugs kick into effect in just a few minutes and can last up to 4 hours. It’s sold under the brand name Anased, Chanazine, Rompun, and Sedazine.

People who use this contaminated drug get it into their bloodstream in ways such as:

  • Smoking

  • Snorting

  • Injecting

  • Swallowing

  • Inhaling

What Effect Does Tranq Have on Humans?

When you overdose on drugs that contain traces of tranq, it can cause dangerous side effects. In severe cases, overdosing can lead to death.
