Ivabradine is a drug used primarily in the treatment of heart failure. Its role is to slow the heartbeat in order to better control the electricity of the heart.

Ivabradine should be taken twice a day.

The most common side effects are related to a slower heart, such as dizziness and fatigue. It should also be mentioned that some people may temporarily see bright "flashes". These are called phosphines and can occur intermittently. They are not dangerous but ask for cautiousness especially when driving or when operating heavy machinery.
