Suggest alternative of norpace CR for irregular heart beats

default
Posted on Mon, 16 Jun 2014
Question: I have been taking Norpace CR for about 16 years. After trying many other meds, this was the only one that helped my irregular heartbeat. Now my drugstore, CVS Pharmacy tells me that they can not get Norpace CR any more. Why would they stop making something that helps so many people? I am really scared about what I should take in place of this med. that will help my problem. Do you have any answers for me? And is there another drug store that can get Norpace CR for me in New Hampshire, Laconia area. Thank you I'm advance for your help. YYYY@YYYY

Brief Answer:
Ask for other brand name for generic Disopyramide

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Norpace CR is the brand name for the generic disopyramide phosphate
extended release capsules. So, if disopyramide is not found under the trade name Norpace CR, should ask for other brand names of disopyramide.

Glaxo Smithkline Pharmaceuticals Ltd is also manufacturing disopyramide under the trade name of "Regubeat". You can ask at your local pharmacy too.

Hope it was of help! Let me know if you have further queries!
