Rythmol , also commonly known as propafenone, belongs to the category of medicine called anti arrhythmias. This type of drug is used to treat abnormal heartbeats and assist in maintaining a regular heart rhythm.
Rythmol works by slowing the nerve pulses in the heart and making the heart tissue more resistant to sensitivity. This type of drug is taken orally in tablet or capsule form.
Some of the common side effects of Rythmol include a change in taste, moderate chest pains, shortness of breath, irregular heartbeat, dizziness, fainting, chills and fever.
This type of medication should only be given to patients with severe heart problems since this drug has been known to make heart problems worse.
Rythmol may be used to treat other conditions as well, as suggested by your doctor.
