Norpace Side Effects

If you have never taken Norpace, it can be difficult to predict whether you might develop side effects during treatment with this drug. During clinical studies, common side effects included dry mouth, constipation, and difficulty urinating. There are also some potentially serious problems, such as fever, chest pain, or feeling faint, which should be reported to your healthcare provider right away.

An Introduction to Norpace Side Effects

Just like any medicine, Norpace® (disopyramide) can cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the medication will have problems. In fact, many people tolerate it quite well. If side effects do occur, in many cases, they are minor and either require no treatment or are treated easily by you or your healthcare provider. Serious side effects are less common.
