Betapace improves a cardiovascular system and provides a hypotensive, antianginal, antiarrhythmic action. It has an active ingredient Sotalol.
This is a nonselective blocking agent of beta-adrenoceptors which acts to β1- and β2- adrenoceptors. Betapace lowers the frequency of the cardiac rates and myocardial contractility, reduces automatism of sinoatrial node, increases tone of the smooth muscles, bronchi and blood vessels. These changes of the heart functions lower a need of myocardium in oxygen and load to the heart.
Betapace controls the rates of the blood pressure and lowers a risk of its increase. It does not work to reduce hypertonic crisis and cannot cure of this pathology. Betapace is developed to improve some functions of the cardiovascular system.
As Betapace is a non-selective blocking agent of adrenoceptors, it may be contraindicated for many patients, and that is why, it is necessary to consult a cardiologist before starting the treatment. If you do not have contraindications, you should use Betapace for the treatment and prophylaxis of:
- Symptomatic unstable ventricular tachyarrhythmias
- Arrhythmias caused by increased level of catecholamines
- Chronic atrial fibrillation after cardiac pacing with direct current
In what dose is Betapace used?
In case of the heart rate disorder, Betapace is used in the dose of 80 mg 2 times per day. In case of the poor efficiency, the daily dose may be increased up to 80 mg 3 times per day. Patients with chronic atrial fibrillations may take the maximal dose of Betapace 160 mg 2 times per day.
The dose may be gradually increased in order to control the body reaction and adjust the course of the treatment.
In case of the severe form of the renal failure, it is recommended to take 50% from the daily dose of Betapace. Senior patients should not decrease the daily dose.
The treatment is continued till a therapeutic effect of Betapace is kept. As soon as the efficiency of the treatment is decreased and a daily dose should be increased, the treatment is stopped.
Recommendations for the use
- Do not take the drug during meals because bioavailability of the active ingredients is decreased in this case
- The controlled functions of the cardiovascular system should be done on a regular basis with the interval of 1 month
- Betapace is contraindicated during cardiogenic shock, congestive heart failure, bradycardia, bronchial asthma or airway obstruction, severe diseases of the peripheral circulation
- Betapace is not prescribed patients under 18 years old, pregnant women
