I'm wondering what the usual level of contact is with your heart specialist?
The last time I went in to see a consultant I was prescribed Sotalol and given a follow up appointment for six months time - is this usual for the UK?
I only ask because I was in Sweden last weekend and actually ended up at Gothenburg A&E. I was told there that they would not prescribe a medication as strong as Sotalol without having frequent follow up appointments to make sure everything was OK. I also read that in the US they keep you in hospital and monitor your closely while you start Amiodorone or Sotalol.
I actually had a bad reaction to Sotalol so have been put back onto Bisoprolol instead.
