Loading dose.

Treatment usually begins with 200 mg (1 tablet) 3 times daily for a week, reducing the dose to 200 mg 2 times a day for the next week.

Maintenance dose.

It is necessary to apply the minimum effective dose according to the patient’s response to the drug. After a period of saturation dose can be reduced to 200 mg or 100 mg per day. Occasionally, patients may require higher maintenance doses. Maintenance dose should be regularly reviewed, especially if it exceeds 200 mg per day.

Too high a dose during maintenance therapy can cause side effects that are believed to be associated with high levels of amiodarone and its metabolites in body tissues.

As Rotaritmil has a very long half-life, it can take a day (200 mg can be taken in a day, and 100 mg taken daily is recommended). You can take a break in taking the drug for 2 days a week. Daily ingestion is determined individually.

Elderly patients.

As with all patients it is important to use the minimum effective dose. Elderly patients may exhibit increased sensitivity to the action of the appointment Rotarytmilu even normal doses. Particular attention should be paid to monitoring thyroid function.
