Labored breathing

Hi I was diagnosed with A FIB and just prescribed 80 mg twice daily of Sotalol in place of my HBP medication metoprolol. After the first dose I started feeling like I had to make myself breathe, and my heart continues to skip. It's too late to contact the doc and I am trying to avoid trip to ER. Will I be ok till morning? I'm hoping this wears off soon as I took it 4 hours ago. I think I was better on the Metoprolol..Help please ## Those can be side effects of Sotalol, according to FDA reports. You may also experience nausea, fainting, indigestion, sweating, and diarrhea. What dosage were you taking of the Metoprolol? It is possible that some of your symptoms are due to stopping it, and switching to the new medication. Are you on any other medications?

Would like to stop Flecainide while taking Cartia

I'm on flecainide 50mg 2 times daily and diltiazem 120mg once daily. I was put on this from a paroxysmal afib event I had in January of this year. I feel this regime is too big of a gun for the problem. I'm tired all the time and lost my get up and go. Dr did say in my last appointment that I could get off it. I would continue with the diltiazem.... Am I able to just stop? ## There is a chance that stopping abruptly may cause rebound effects, such as elevated heart rate, palpitations, and irregular heart beat, so it would be best to talk to your doctor, and follow their instructions, to stop it safely. Diltiazem may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, increased urination, headache, dry mouth, and hypotension. Are these the only medications you are currently taking? ##...

Is there any problems taking Ardosons while taking Sotalol for my heart? ## Hello, Bob! How are you? Yes, Ardosons is listed as containing Indomethacin, Betamethasone and Methocarbamol.

please tell me the symptoms for overdose intake of SP tablet. ## Hi Sanju, According to an article I found on, an overdose of Spasmo Proxyvon can actually be fatal.

Some of these symptoms can include: restlessness, abnormal behavior, incoherence of thought & speech, convulsions, dry mouth, dilated pupils, irregular heartbeat, delirium, hallucinations, central nervous system collapse, and even respiratory depression.

Taking Sotalol for AFib

I was diagnosed in 2006 with a-fib and was on metoprolol along with another that I forget. In 2014 I had to get a new cardiologist, he put me on sotalol 120mg 2 x per day and 60 mg once per day. Then in 2017 my pulse was into the low 40s so now I have a pace maker. I still have a-fib once an while. My Dr. said it will never will go away. I also have had 2 abaltions, been converted half dozen times. All I can say about a-fib is you will learn to live with it. Because as all the Drs. say is a-fib will not kill us. ## Hello, Gene! How are you doing? Given the multiple issues you've had and your requiring a pacemaker to be installed, your a-fib must be pretty severe. If left untreated a-fib can be fatal, since it can cause poor blood flow, which could result in stroke, and cardiac dange...

Sotalol 120mg Teva vs Sotalol 120mg Apotex

I have been taking Sotalol Teva for over 15 years and picked up a new prescription at Wal-Mart and received a different brand (Apotex). I called and the pharmacist said they were the same. My heart seems to disagree and is hopping around. Maybe like drinking coke for 15 yrs and then them throwing in a Pepsi. LOL. Is it my mind or what? My heart is giving me a "not in my head" reaction. ## Hello Jack, I hope that you are doing well. After doing some research I found that both Sotalol pills have the same active Ingredient SOTALOL HYDROCHLORIDE 120mg but where the two pills differ is the listed inactive ingredients. Teva reportedly contains these inactive ingredients: - Starch, Corn - Lactose Monohydrate - Magnesium Stearate - Povidone K30 - Fd&c Blue No. 2 - Indigotindisulfona...

Flecainide 50mg one twice a day after having a catheter ablation Two and a half weeks later I m having the same issues as I had befor the ablation

After having a catheter ablation the doctor prescribed Flecainide and now three weeks later I'm having the same issues I had before the ablation. I'm having dizzy spells, fainting spells (although they stop before I fall) and flashes of heat thru my body. I'm also on Metoprolol and Pradaxa. ## Hello, Janette! Sorry about the problems that you're having. Have you checked your blood pressure, when you're feeling dizzy and/or faint? There is a chance that it may be going too low and causing these types of symptoms. Is there any particular time that they happen more frequently, such as when you stand or sit up suddenly? ## My blood pressure is good, and the spells can come when I'm sitting or standing. I did stop taking the Flecainide. Had one spell since. The doctor...

Is Rythmol necessary if you have a pacemaker?

My mother has a pacemaker but was never taken off Rythmol... We were wondering why she still should take Rythmol? ## It contains the active ingredient Propafenone, which is used to help prevent cardiac arrhythmia, and she should take it as long as her doctor deems it appropriate for her to do so. The pacemaker cannot do everything, so she could still be at risk, if she stops the medication. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased urination, lowered heart rate, headache, and hypotension. Is she on any other medications? Why was the pacemaker implanted? At this time, even with the pacemaker, it is very important to keep her cardiac rhythm under control. In most cases, it takes multiple methods to help prolong someone's life, and to pro...
