Some advice needed. My son has been asked to change from Bisporol 5mg daily to Sotalol 80mg, twice a day. He’s been on Sotalol for a week and is eyes are all dry, he’s getting palpitations, tiredness and is breathing seems different.
He’s 22 and on the autistic spectrum and it can be difficult to get information from him. I have certainly seen the change.
Have emailed cardiology at our local hospital but I will be lucky to hear back from them. I am now thinking of starting him back on original medication (Bisoprolol) where he had no side effects! I have also read that Sotalol should be started very carefully with continued support.
Cannot get an appointment with general doctor until Friday pm. He does have an appointment at Glasgow with Professor Connelly, the Dr who advised Dumfries hospital to switch medication on Tuesday but feel I can’t wait this long. He’s just not himself.
Is anyone else on this drug? Did you have same side effects? Reading stories Bisporol a far safer drug!
Any information would be appreciated.
