What is Rythmol SR?

Rythmol SR is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by GSK. This medication is used to help prevent certain types of serious irregular heartbeat (such as paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia and atrial fibrillation). It is used to help maintain a regular, steady heartbeat.

Rythmol SR is an antiarrhythmic indicated to prolong the time to recurrence of symptomatic atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with episodic AF who do not have structural heart disease.

Rythmol SR is used in patients with permanent atrial fibrillation or with atrial flutter or PSVT that has not been evaluated. In patients with atrial fibrillation and atrial flutter, use Rythmol SR with drugs that increase the atrioventricular nodal refractory period. The effect of propafenone on mortality is not known.

What doses of Rythmol SR are available?

Rythmol SR is available in extended-release capsule form, in the following doses: 225 mg, 325 mg, and 425 mg.

Initiate therapy with 225 mg given every 12 hours. The dosage may be increased at a minimum of 5-day intervals to 325 mg every 12 hours and, if necessary, to 425 mg every 12 hours. Dose reduction should be considered in patients with hepatic impairment, significant widening of the QRS complex, or second or third-degree AV block.

Always speak with your healthcare provider for medical advice about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
