Hi @lily1943,

I see that @colleenyoung was nice enough to reply to your question on the podcast that was held. Have you been able to answer her? I linked it below in case you are having trouble locating it.

I am sorry that your husband is having such a hard time. Has he been diagnosed with total heart blockage, or are you just worried about the side effects of the medication?

My husband has A fib with erratic heart beat (per EKG) and is scheduled to have sotalol loading procedure in 1 week. 3 days in hospital while receiving meds via IV. then on 3rd day electric shock the heart. Anticipate continuing with sotalol orally. Any experiences?

I have been on Sotolol since early February. I was having episodes of afib about every 2 months that would last about 2 weeks (was being treated with Eliquis and Multaq). Was admitted to hospital for 3 days to watch EKG as Sotolol was administered orally and all was fine. Since then, no afib and no (noticeable) side effects. I have other arrhythmias (PAC’s and PVC’s). The Sotolol did not help those, but I wasn’t expecting that. I say two thumbs up for Sotolol so far.

Was curious if the sotarol contributed to the total heart block,since it lowers heart rate…..
