Today I saw my EP and mentioned to him that following my attendance at the 2014 AFA Patients Day I felt uncomfortable about taking Sotolol. I have been taking 160mg daily for the past seven years with varying degrees of success. I have had two ablations and two pacemakers. He seemed rather miffed that I should question him about the drugs I am taking and said he had never heard of any problems with Sotolol nor any mention of it not being a NICE recommended drug now. He wanted me to send him the evidence of who the eminent EPs are that attend the conference and where in the NICE guidelines it mentions the use of Sotolol. However he has put me on Bisopolol 5mg daily and reduced the Dabigatran from 150mg twice daily to 110mg twice daily. Any thought from anyone?
