Disopyramide Dosage

General Information on Taking Disopyramide

Some considerations to keep in mind during treatment with disopyramide include the following:
 
  • This medication comes in the form of a capsule. It is usually taken by mouth every 6 or 12 hours, depending on the particular product used.
 
  • You will start treatment in a hospital, where a healthcare provider can closely monitor you.
 
  • This medication can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
 
  • The capsules should be swallowed whole; do not crush or chew them.
 
  • Immediate-release disopyramide can be made into a liquid suspension. Ask your pharmacist about this option if you have difficulty swallowing the capsules.
 
  • You should try to take your doses at about the same times each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
 
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not stop taking disopyramide, even if you feel well, as your irregular heartbeat may return.
 
  • If you are unsure about anything related to your dosage or disopyramide dosing in general, please talk with your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
