    I have taken Betapace since 2002 with only two episodes of atrial fib of less than a day each. I take 80mg twice a day. Prior to Betapace, Toprol was ineffective. If I have a cold or the flu, sometimes a third dosage in the afternoon is helpful.

    Changed from Metoprolol to Sotolol because of atril fibillation. Seemed to work for 1st 2 weeks now not so good. Feel bad most all of the time...worse atril fib than before. Notice it about 2 hrs after taking Sotolol.

    Comment:
    My mother only started taking this medication about a week ago. She was weak before but even more so now. I'm trying to pin down which of her mass of medications may be causing the problem. I think from all your comments, this may be a contributing factor.
