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.

I don't know whether an active life impacts the effectiveness of sotalol. I have been very active most of my life, ran regularly including a couple of marathons years ago, currently still Golf and go to exercise class 4 days a week at the senior community in which we live and walk some other days. I participated in and started many organizations like golf group, breakfast group, St John's University alumni group, men's group, Bridge group, Etc. I do not know whether that positively impacts the effectiveness of Sotalol.
