I have been taken Sotolol in varying dosages for the past six and a half years. Currently I take 80mg twice daily. I was put on Sotolol as I am asthmatic. Recently I have developed a lot of arthritis like pain and stiffness in my upper arms and shoulders and wondered if long term use of Sotolol could contribute to this. I also take Dabigatran 150mg, twice daily. Does anyone else experience similar problems.
