I have episodes of PAF for a couple of years but didn't know what it was and as was so seldom I never went to the doctor. However in the last few months it got much more frequent and in the last few weeks since diagnosis it's happening every couple of days. I have an appt. with cardiologist on 17th June. At the moment I am just on 75mg aspirin and was on very low dose of Bisoprolol but doctor says I'm not even tolerating that and wants me to try Sotalol. Trouble is I have read that you should be in hospital and near heart resuscitating equipment when you start it as it can cause unwanted heart arrhythmias which can be fatal!!!! Has anyone just started this medication at home and how have you found it? Sorry this is so long but very scared about everything. Feel my life is over.
