 5  ventricular tachycardia None This is a miracle drug for me. "V-tach" is a sword of Damocles, where a strong arrhythmia can kill you. From the irregular heartbeats, I experienced intermittent but persistent palpitations for months. Once on Sotalol 120 mg, twice per day, I have not had any palpitations. I have my energy back, and a brighter outlook. I have begun exercising again; before, I was afraid to do so. M 56 2 weeks

 4  To stabilize heart rate Perhaps a slight loss of energy and tendency to require rest periods or a "nap" some days. I awaken at night with very dry mouth and throat, but a 1/2 glass of OJ fixes that nicely. At 75+ I seem to require 8+ hours of sleep most nights to feel fully rested, but need a slow start after breakfast for my days involvements, indoors or out. During hospitalization, I was told that I have Angina to some degree, but have not had any incidents. M 75 4 years

SOTALOL HCL  (SOTALOL HYDROCHLORIDE):  This medication is used to treat a serious (possibly life-threatening) type of fast heartbeat called sustained ventricular tachycardia. It is also used to treat certain fast/irregular heartbeats (atrial fibrillation/flutter) in patients with severe symptoms such as weakness and shortness of breath. Sotalol helps to lessen these symptoms. It slows the heart rate and helps the heart to beat more normally and regularly. This medication is both a beta blocker and an anti-arrhythmic.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
