Sotalol Hcl

Drug Info for sotalol hcl

Sotalol is used to treat certain types of serious, life-threatening ventricular arrhythmias (abnormal heartbeats). Sotalol is also used to treat people who currently have normal heart rhythm, but have had symptomatic atrial fibrillation or atrial flutter in the past. Sotalol is in a class of medications called antiarrhythmics. It works by acting on the heart muscle to improve the heart's rhythm.

Sorine is a prescription medication used in patients with ventricular tachycardia or ventricular fibrillation. This medication affects the heart and blood flow through arteries and veins. It slows the heart rate which returns the heartbeat to normal. This relieves shortness and weakness of breath.
