Were you looking for information about Tikosyn? Tikisyn is a common misspelling of Tikosyn.
Taking Tikosyn® (dofetilide) capsules twice daily can help get an irregular heart rate (known medically as an arrhythmia) back to a normal rhythm and help maintain it. This drug is specifically used in adults who have atrial fibrillation (commonly referred to as "a-fib") or atrial flutter.
Tikosyn works by blocking potassium channels, which helps the heart tissue resist any premature electrical signal. However, this drug is not suitable for everyone; let your healthcare provider know if you have any medical issues (such as liver or kidney disease), or if you are taking any other medications.
