Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

Regarding your concern, I agree with your doctor in the decision of taking off sotalol.

It is true that betablockers can cause chronic fatigue by reducing physical performance.

From the other hand the only concern about being without an anti-arrhythmic drug is the possible occurrence of atrial fibrillation or an increased heart rate.

If this occurs, I would recommend restarting sotalol with low doses until consulting with your doctor.

You can not take any other anti-arrhythmic drug without medical prescription.

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

Kind regards,

Dr. Iliri
