Side Effects: Amiodarone vs Sotalol

I started taking 120 mg of Sotalol in July 2015. It worked well for about 4 years but in 2019 I had almost monthly episodes of AFib so in October 2019 my dosage was increased to 160 mg and that has worked very fine. In the last 10 months I have not experienced AFib.

I am starting to wonder whether the potential side effects of Sotalol are mitigated by activity. Can I ask whether you are fairly active?
When I say side effects, I am referring to its effects on the other beta receptors in the body, not the heart. The slower HR is the intended effect, I think . . .
Glad to hear it is working so well for you. I seem to need 160 mg, as well.
