Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome on HCM!

Regarding your concern, I would explain that Amiodarone could be a treatment option, as Sotalol has been ineffective in your clinical situation, although these drugs belong to the same pharmacological class.

But before trying this medical alternative which is associated to several adverse effects, other anti-arrhythmic drugs seem to be more suitable to your clinical scenario.

I would recommend considering a maintenance regimen with Propafenone 150mg three times daily or Flecainide 100mg twice daily.

You should discuss with your doctor on the above treatment options.

Hope to have been helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
