Mexitil 150 Mg

If you have a potentially life-threatening ventricular arrhythmia, your healthcare provider may recommend 150 mg of Mexitil® (mexiletine). However, your specific dosage will depend on how you respond to the medication, other drugs you are taking, and various other factors.
 
This prescription drug comes as a capsule that is taken every 8 or 12 hours. You will receive your first doses in the hospital, where you can be carefully monitored. Mexitil works by slowing down certain electrical signals in the heart, which helps stabilize the heart rate.
 
Although side effects are possible with Mexitil, they tend to be minor and easy to treat. Some of the most common reactions include gastrointestinal problems, tremors, and lightheadedness.
