Disopyramide Drug Information

If you have potentially life-threatening heart rhythm problems, your healthcare provider may prescribe disopyramide (Norpace®, Norpace® CR). This medicine is specifically approved to treat serious ventricular arrhythmia, which is an abnormal heartbeat that begins in the lower chambers of the heart (the ventricles).
 
Disopyramide comes as immediate-release or controlled-release capsules that are taken every 6 or 12 hours, depending on the particular product being used. Your specific dosage will depend on your age, weight, and various other factors. Some of the potential side effects of the drug include constipation, difficulty urinating, and dry mouth.
 
Your healthcare provider will need information on any other medical conditions you have before starting treatment with disopyramide, as this drug can cause potentially serious and even life-threatening complications in some people. There are also some dangerous drug interactions to be aware of, so make sure your healthcare provider knows about all other medications, vitamins, and supplements you are taking.
