In brief: Affect the rhythm
These are typically drugs to treat arrhythmia.
Commonly fast heart rate from a rapid atrial arrhythmia (typically atrial fibrillation) is treated. Flecainid is a class ic drug that helps restore rhythm. Diltiazem is calcium channel blocker that is an av blocking agent that slows down the heart rate.
