We also anticipate being able to handle more complex scenarios such as using primary insurance combined with a manufacturer copay assistance program.

What should you do if you use too much sotalol?


Call your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention if your symptoms do not improve or they become worse after using sotalol. You can also call 800-222-1222 to reach the American Association of Poison Control Centers or use its online resource if you think you’ve used too much sotalol. But if you have severe symptoms, call 911 (or your local emergency number) immediately or go to the nearest emergency room.


If you think it is an emergency, call 999 or find your nearest A&E
If you need help now, but it’s not an emergency go to 111.nhs.uk or call 111. Alternatively you can speak to one of our pharmacists or use the Now Patient app to make an appointment with your GP.

What should I do if I miss my dose?

There are occasions when people forget to take their medication at correct prescribed times. This may not only have an effect on potentially making the medication less effective but it may also inadvertently lead to taking doses too close together, thereby increasing the risks of side effects.

Conditions treated by sotalol

How does sotalol work?

Dosage of sotalol

The dose of sotalol may vary depending on the individual’s specific condition, response to treatment, and other factors. It is important to follow the recommended dosage instructions provided by the healthcare provider.

Directions for sotalol use

Sotalol should be taken exactly as directed by the healthcare provider. The tablets are usually taken orally, with or without food. Do not take antacids containing aluminum or magnesium at the same time as sotalol. These can decrease sotalols absorption. It is important to take sotalol consistently and at the same time each day for the best results.

Warnings and contraindications for sotalol

  • Low potassium or magnesium blood levels may increase your risk of QT prolongation when taking sotalol
  • It is important to regularly monitor heart rhythm and blood pressure while taking sotalol
  • Tell your doctor if you have heart disease such as a slow heartbeat (bradycardia), sick sinus syndrome, second or third-degree atrioventricular block and don’t have a heart pacemaker), heart failure, recent heart attack, asthma, emphysema, an overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), or have had serious allergic reaction needing epinephrine
  • Sotalol may cause life-threatening arrhythmias when taken with other drugs that prolong QT interval (such as tricyclic antidepressants, macrolides, and quinolone antibiotics)
  • You should stop taking Class I or Class III antiarrhythmic drugs before taking sotalol
  • Sotalol may mask the fast heartbeats you would normally feel when your blood sugar level falls too low (hypoglycemia)
  • Sotalol passes into breast milk. Speak to your doctor before breast-feeding

Use of sotalol if pregnant or planning pregnancy

The use of sotalol during pregnancy should be discussed with a healthcare provider. It should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefits outweigh the risks.

Possible side effects of sotalol

Common side effects of sotalol may include dizziness, lightheadedness, tiredness, slow heart rate, low blood pressure, and digestive disturbances. Serious side effects are rare but can occur. Tell your doctor right away if you have new or worsening symptoms of heart failure (such as swelling in your ankles or feet, sudden weight gain, or unusual tiredness). Get medical help right away if you have a life-threatening allergic reaction. Symptoms include hives, trouble breathing, shortness of breath, chest pain, swelling of the face, tongue or throat, skin rash, and severe skin reactions. Promptly report any adverse effects to a healthcare professional for medical advice.

Interactions with other drugs

Sotalol may interact with certain medications, including calcium channel blockers, epinephrine, erythromycin, amiodarone, clonidine, and digoxin. It is important to inform your healthcare provider about all the prescription drugs, over the counter nonprescription medication, supplements, and vitamins you are taking to avoid potential adverse effects and drug interactions.

Similar drugs to sotalol

Other antiarrhythmic medications, such as amiodarone and propafenone, may be used as alternatives for the treatment of irregular heart rhythms.
