What's the difference between Sotalol and Sotalol AF?

Medically reviewed by Last updated on Oct 23, 2023.

Is there an additional drug or different salt used?

Official answer


Sotalol AF is specifically used for maintenance of normal sinus rhythm [delay in time to recurrence of atrial fibrillation/atrial flutter (AFIB/AFL)] in patients with symptomatic AFIB/AFL who are currently in sinus rhythm.

Plain Sotalol is not approved for AFIB/AFL indication and should not be substituted for Sotalol AF because only Sotalol AF is distributed with a patient package insert that is appropriate for patients with AFIB/AFL.
