Action
For prophylaxis and treatment of ventricular and supraventricular tachycardias and extrasystoles.
Pharmacology: Rytmonorm is a highly effective antiarrhythmic agent with a basic local anaesthetic effect and a membrane-stabilizing effect on the cardiac muscle cell. It prolongs the refractory period in the atria and ventricles dose-dependently. Therefore, the action of Rytmonorm on cardiac arrhythmias of varying origin is pronounced and reliable.
Pharmacokinetics: After a rapid onset of effect (approximately 30 min), Rytmonorm tablet achieves its maximum effect after 2-3 hrs. The duration of effect is >8 hrs. Therefore Rytmonorm tablet is highly suitable for long-term or permanent treatment, and provides effective protection against paroxysmal tachycardias and tachyarrhythmias.
