When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Norpace include the following:
  • Norpace comes in the form of a capsule. It is usually taken by mouth every six hours.
  • You will begin treatment with Norpace in a hospital setting, where you can be closely monitored.
  • This medication can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
  • Try to take your doses at about the same times each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
  • Norpace can be made into a liquid suspension for people who cannot swallow the capsules, such as young children. Ask your pharmacist about a liquid suspension if swallowing the capsules is difficult for you or your child. Norpace liquid suspension must be shaken well before each use to make sure the medication is thoroughly mixed.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not stop taking it, even if you feel well, as your irregular heartbeat may return.

Dosing Information

The dose of Norpace your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Your weight
  • Your age
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
