Brand name: Rythmodan TM

Active ingredients: disopyramide

What it is used for

Management of documented ventricular arrhythmias, e.g. sustained ventricular tachycardia, which are judged to be life threatening. Because of its proarrhythmic potential, the use of disopyramide is not recommended for lesser arrhythmias. Treatment of asymptomatic ventricular premature contractions should be avoided. In patients with structural heart disease, proarrhythmia and cardiac decompensation are a special risk associated with antiarrhythmic drugs. Special caution should be exercised when prescribing disopyramide for these patients. (See Precautions.)
