When and How to Use It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Nexterone include the following:
  • This medication comes as a liquid that is given as a slow injection into a vein (an intravenous, or IV, infusion). The injection is usually given through a tube inserted into a large vein in the chest.
  • You will receive this medicine in the hospital, where you will be closely monitored. You may need to remain in the hospital for one to three weeks.
  • Once your arrhythmia is stable, your healthcare provider may switch you over to amiodarone tablets. Make sure you understand the instructions for correctly using amiodarone tablets.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be used as prescribed. Do not stop using this medication until your healthcare provider tells you to do so, as your irregular heartbeat may return.

Dosing Information

The dose of Nexterone your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • The severity of your arrhythmia
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Whether you develop side effects.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
