My cardiologist has prescribed Sotalol for rhythm problems of my upper heart (A-Fib). But the information sheet that came from pharmacy with the medicine says that Sotalol AF (not Sotalol) is the medicine for the upper heart rhythm problem. Is the prescription incorrect?

After taking Eliquis and Sototol I now have a mucousy substance in my bowel and cannot seem to eat much, no appetite and after a few bites feel sick to stomach. I have stopped the meds, no bowel movements as haven t eaten enough o have any. So now all I get is the mucous on the toilet paper. Know I need to go to a gastroenterologist, but can t get off the toilet or stop cramping up long enough to go. I was taking them as I had my Mitral valve replaced with a Porcine valve 6 yrs ago and had to go to the emergency room with a A-fib and they shocked my heart back into rhythm. Cardiologist says I don t need these meds as when he put the valve in he put a special cap at the top to prevent blood clots. Thanks Dorothy 80 yrs. old.

I was told there is a new drug I could replace my sotalol with, have my energy back. I would go in hospital for three days to be monitored. What is the name of the drug and what do you think of it. I have atrial fibrillation, had two ablutions. I always have to be converted back in rhythm. Marilyn
