What is Norpace?

Disopyramide (INN, trade names Norpace and Rythmodan) is an antiarrhythmic medication used in the treatment of Ventricular Tachycardia. It is a sodium channel blocker and therefore classified as a Class 1a anti-arrhythmic agent.’ Disopyramide has a negative inotropic effect on the ventricular myocardium, significantly decreasing the contractility.' Disopyramide also has an anticholinergic effect on the heart which accounts for many adverse side effects. Disopyramide is available in both oral and intravenous forms, and has a low degree of toxicity.
