    Placed on Sotalol oral after placement of ICD for Afib. Episodes of Afib more severe though at 8 week intervals I am unable to function normaly for 30-48 hours at a time. 16 months later I am opting for cardio ablation therapy. Want off this medicine to spare liver.

    I have been in an out of A-fib for the past ten years. I was recently put on valsartan and 80 mg of sotalol, half in the morning and half at night. My pulse rate is lower has been down to 48 beats a minute. I have a terrible back ache a times and wonder if anyone else experiences severe back aches.

    Initially worked well, then began to have more and more episodes of afib. lost 30 lbs and exercised regularly after that the afib worsened and would occur shortly after taking sotalol. have stopped this medication and afib has reduced. I am looking at diet issues and continuing the exercise. Might be hard for a doctor to believe but this medication made afib worse for me.
