Sorine

When and How to Take Sorine

Some general considerations for those taking this medication include the following:
 
  • Sorine comes in tablet form. It is usually taken by mouth one to three times a day.
     
  • If necessary, your pharmacist can make a syrup using the tablets. This is especially useful for young children who cannot swallow tablets.
     
  • You can take this medicine either with a meal or on an empty stomach.
     
  • Sorine should always be started within a hospital or a similar facility, where the heart can be continuously monitored until you have reached a steady dose for at least three days.
     
  • For the medicine to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Sorine will not work if you stop taking it.
     
  • In general, this medication should not be stopped suddenly, as serious problems (including heart attacks) may result.
     

Dosing Information

The dose of Sorine your healthcare provider recommends will vary, depending on a number of factors, including:
 
  • The type of arrhythmia you have
  • Your kidney function
  • Your age
  • Your height and weight (for children)
  • How you respond to the drug
  • Other medications you are taking
  • Other medical conditions you may have.
     
As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so.
