Betapace FAQs

How Does Betapace Work?

Betapace slows the heart rate and helps it beat more slowly and regularly. It is only effective for people who have problems with the lower chambers of the heart (the ventricles) rather than the upper chambers of the heart (the atrium). There are different medications available to help with atrial problems.

What is the Starting Dosage of Betapace?

The starting dosage of Betapace is usually 80 mg taken twice a day. Maintenance doses are usually 160-320 mg per day, taken twice a day, although dosages may be as high as 480-640 mg per day in rare cases. Always follow your doctor’s dosing instructions.

What are the Benefits of Betapace?

Betapace helps you maintain a regular heartbeat of normal speed. Fast or irregular heartbeats are potentially fatal, so Betapace can be a life-saving medication.
