Mexitil Medication Information

A healthcare provider may prescribe Mexitil® (mexiletine) to treat a specific type of irregular heart rhythm. By slowing down certain electrical signals in the heart, this medication can help keep the heart beating at a regular rate. It is designed for use in adults only and is specifically approved for treating life-threatening irregular heartbeats known as ventricular arrhythmias.
 
There are some potentially dangerous complications that can occur with this medicine, so you will usually receive your first doses of Mexitil in a hospital so you can be carefully monitored. Side effects can also occur and may include lightheadedness, tremors, and gastrointestinal problems.
 
Although this can be an effective product for many people, not everyone can use this medication. Information on Mexitil should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before starting treatment to help minimize potential complications. People who have certain types of heart block or certain allergies should not take it.
