Been to back to the hospital today and it sounds like good news.
They have taken me off Bisoprolol and put me on Sotalol (40 mg twice a day). I am so pleased to be off Bisoprolol. I don't want that to put others off from taking it as it ticks the boxes (for me) regarding lowering my HR. We are all different of course and it might be ok for you.
Now I have a copy of the letter sent by my cardio to my GP as I type.
The next step is an echocardiogram to 'assess his left atrium size before proceeding to DC cardioversion'.
Should be fine.
Checked Sotalol out online - it appears to be a cross between a beta blocker and antiarrhythmic med. I know we can't give medical advice but just wondering how others got on with it ? Saying that it seems to be 50 / 50 but count me in for now.
I must say though I'm delighted to be off Bisoprolol. Let's see how this one goes
Ps - 'it appears to be a cross between a beta blocker and antiarrhythmic med'. That's the one I really want to know.
