Thanks for posting your query.
Sotalol is a beta blocker with significant anti-arrhythmic properties.
It can cause significant bradycardia and sick sinus syndrome like symptoms and hypotension, dizziness and fatigue.
You should get evaluated by a cardiologist for the overdose possibility and tune up the dose.
