I also had AFIB but had 2 ablations and fine now with meds. Besides tiredness sometimes I get heart palpatations. My Dr. says side effect from sotalol. Anybody else get these feelings?

I am 65 years old and was diagnosed with AFIB last fall. I was put on sotalol 80 mg. I have had a few incidents of AFIB, the worst lasting four hours but the last couple only two hours. I had no side affects at all. For me it was an easy drug to take although I don't like taking this kind of medicine. I do get an occasional palpatations but doc said that's not a problem since it's just a few. Otherwise when I lay down at night to sleep I occasionally feel my heart beating, not in AFIB, just annoying. I had to be taken off it recently due to having to take a strong antibiotic for a lung infection.

I take sotolal and carvedilol as well. I was taking lisinipril as well. I was exhausted and my bp would run 90/55 and heartrate really low . My dosage was 2 pills each a day. Dr cut out lisinipril . Half a sotolal and same Coreg. I feel much better now. Have congestive heart failure as well as Afib.

I am on sotalol 40 mil every 12 hours and feel tired a lot.
I was put on it after having a virus/ pneumonia that caused afib.
I am hoping that I will be able to stop the med in the near future.
Has anyone stopped taking this drug successfully? I have not had any reoccurances of afib since taking the sotalol 2 1/2 months ago.

I take sotalol 160 mgs twice daily! So you don't have it that bad! I've had afib since I was 20... Had pulmonary vein ablation last aug. it work for afib now I'm in tachycardia full time! Without sotalol my heart rate is between 120-160 bpm. Sotalol keeps it between 85-97bpm. It will make you very tired.. Beats being n afib though! My afib was around 250bpm! Only went into afib when I slept! God bless
