Table of contents:

Rythmol (generically known as Propafenone) is a medication used to restore and maintain a regular heartbeat in people with certain types of irregular heart rhythms (arrhythmias), such as atrial fibrillation and ventricular arrhythmias. It is known as an anti-arrhythmic drug.

Propafenone works by blocking the flow of certain electrical signals in the heart, which helps to regulate the heartbeat. Treating an irregular heartbeat can decrease the risk for blood clots, and this effect can reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.

Propafenone is available in scored, film-coated tablets of 150, 225 mg, and 300 mg, and the dosage is typically determined by your healthcare provider based on your medical condition and response to treatment.

Uses and Dosage

Rythmol comes in the form of a tablet to take by mouth with or without food, usually every 8 hours or as directed by your doctor. Dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. Use the tablet regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

The recommended starting dose for adults is 150mg every 8 hours, and the dosage may be increased based on the patient's response to the medication. The maximum recommended dose is 325mg every 8 hours or 425mg every 12 hours, based on the patient's weight.

Follow your doctor's instructions and take Rythmol exactly as prescribed. Do not change the dosage or stop taking the medication without consulting your doctor first. Also, be sure to adhere to the schedule of the dosage and take the medication at the same time each day to maintain a steady level in your blood.
