Rythmol SR

When and How to Take It

Some general considerations to keep in mind during treatment with Rythmol SR include the following:
  • Rythmol SR comes in the form of a capsule. It is usually taken by mouth twice a day, with doses about 12 hours apart.
  • This medication can be taken with or without food. Try taking it with food if it seems to bother your stomach.
  • Take your Rythmol SR doses at the same times each day to keep an even level of the drug in your bloodstream.
  • Do not open, split, crush, or chew Rythmol SR capsules; they must be swallowed whole.
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Do not stop taking it, even if you feel well, as your irregular heartbeat may return.

Dosing Information

The dose of Rythmol SR your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
  • How you respond to the medication
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
As is always the case, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.
