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.

Thanks for your reply. I was thinking specifically of physical activity and I think you are confirming my hypothesis. Though I have no doubt that the other activities are beneficial, as well. I am still able to engage in lots of the other, just not much of the physical. But I am encouraged to keep trying. I wonder whether anyone is researching this question: are the effects of Sotalol on non-cardio beta receptors mitigated by physical exercise. A question for @amandaa, perhaps.
