Benzenedicarboxylic acid diguanides of the formula I ##STR1## in which R(1) to R(5) have the meanings given in the claims, are useful antiarrhythmic pharmaceuticals having a cardioprotective component, even for the prevention of ischemically induced damage, in particular in the induction of ischemically induced cardiac arrhythmias. As a result of inhibition of the cellular Na.sup.+ /H.sup.+ exchange mechanism, they are used for the treatment of acute or chronic damage caused by ischemia. Moreover, they are distinguished by potent inhibitory action on the proliferation of cells. They are suitable for preventing the genesis of high blood pressure.
