Norpace CR Drug Information

If someone has a potentially life-threatening heart rhythm problem called a ventricular arrhythmia, a healthcare provider may prescribe an antiarrhythmia medication called Norpace® CR (disopyramide). This drug comes as a controlled-release capsule that is taken every 12 hours. The initial doses will be given in a hospital, where you can be carefully monitored.
 
Although many people respond well to this drug, Norpace CR is not appropriate for everyone. Information on your medical history and all other medications you are taking should be reviewed with your healthcare provider to help avoid potentially life-threatening complications or serious side effects.
 
Some of the most commonly reported side effects of the drug include constipation, dry mouth, and difficulty urinating. Norpace CR works by slowing down the electrical impulses that move through the heart and preventing the heart from responding to certain signals that would make it beat prematurely.
