I won't bore you with my medical past, but I'm due to have a cardioversion in a couple of weeks time for persistent AF following my ablation. The consultant has mentioned changing my medication from Bisoprolol to Sotalol to help make the cardioversion stick. What has confused me is that it has been mentioned on this forum that Solatol is no longer approved for AF. I'm more than happy to push back to the consultant on this but can't see where it is stated that on the NICE website where Solatol is no longer approved.
I did find the following link
I have also look on the AFA website and Solatol is listed in the resource material.
Has anyone got any evidence to say that Solatol is no longer approved? To be honest some of the potential side effects are worrying.
