Norpace Medication Information

When a person is experiencing a life-threatening ventricular arrhythmia (a type of problem with the heart rhythm), they may receive treatment with Norpace® (disopyramide). This drug comes as a capsule that is taken every six hours. The initial doses will be given in a hospital, where careful monitoring can be provided.
 
Although most people tolerate this medicine well, side effects can occur and may include dry mouth, constipation, and difficulty urinating. Drug interactions may also occur, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware of all medications, vitamins, and herbal supplements you are taking before starting treatment with Norpace.
 
While this can be an effective medication for many people, not everyone can take Norpace. Information on the potential risks should be reviewed with your healthcare provider before starting treatment to help ensure your safety. For instance, people who have low blood pressure, diabetes, or liver disease may not be able to safely use Norpace.
