 1  PVCs After years of taking this drug I experienced very rapid pulse episodes in excess of 120/BPM, somestimes for hours. My cardiologist stopped it cold turkey - rough but effective. After a week, in which I had no less than three - hours long episodes of rapid pulse (120 +/-) things have improved greatly. M 64 20 years

 5  pacemaker needed help dry mouth at times, urine decrease, urine smells I don't think I could function without it. At 40 I had a pacemaker for hypervagatonia, but it doesn't do the job. I still get weak and nauseous. Norpace has helped a lot. F 49 3 years

NORPACE CR  (DISOPYRAMIDE PHOSPHATE):  This medication is used to treat certain types of serious (possibly fatal) irregular heartbeat, such as persistent ventricular tachycardia. It is used to restore normal heart rhythm and maintain a regular, steady heartbeat. Disopyramide is known as an anti-arrhythmic drug. It works by blocking certain electrical signals in the heart that can cause an irregular heartbeat. Treating an irregular heartbeat can decrease the risk for blood clots, and this effect can reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
