Disopyramide is a remedy for the treatment and prevention of heart problems such as heart rhythm disorders, tachycardias and arrhythmias in adults and children. This medicine is an antiarrhythmic drug that acts on the heart by blocking the sodium and potassium channels in the heart cells, which decreases palpitations and treats arrhythmias. Disopyramide may also be known commercially as Dicorantil.
The price of Disopyramide ranges from 20 to 30 reais, and can be purchased at pharmacies or online stores.
