I forgot to take my evening dose. When I woke up this morning, I noticed it was still in my pill bottle. I took my morning dose. Has anyone else ever missed a dose? Any side effects from having missed a dose? Thanks!
For the first time in over four years, I missed a dose of my Sotalol, any side effects?

I took Sotalol 120's twice a day for about 2 years. I missed a dose here and there, mostly when I travelled . One trip I missed 3 in a row and got an unpleasant reminder from my ICD. I've only missed one time since. I recently took a new job, horrible boss, lots of stress. Over several weeks, my BP when up and, once again, my ICD issued a reminder. My Dr. increased my dose to 160's twice a day and so far so good... and I'm changing jobs.

What happens if I miss a dose?
Take the missed dose as soon as you remember. If your next dose is less than 8 hours away, skip the missed dose and take the medicine at the next regularly scheduled time. Do not take extra medicine to make up the missed dose.
You might want to notify your Dr that you missed a dose to see if he would like you to do anything special to make up for the missed dose!
