Sotalol is a beta blocker for ventricular tachycardia used to treat certain types of heart arrhythmia. Rapid heart rates may lead to arrhythmia causing the heart to pump inefficiently. If the heart isn't pumping blood properly, oxygenated blood may not be able to reach different areas of the body. Sotalol is a drug used to treat rapid heart rates in dogs and cats.
The following side effects have been reported and usually occur in older pets: slow heart rate, drowsiness, worsening heart failure, low blood pressure, difficulty breathing bronchospasm, drowsiness, dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. Contact your veterinarian if your pet is very tired, has trouble exercising, begins wheezing, develops shortness of breath or a cough, or if your pet's attitude or behavior changes.
Other side effects may occur. If you notice anything unusual, contact your veterinarian.
Be sure to tell your veterinarian about any other medications or supplements you are giving your pet. It's not uncommon for your veterinarian to prescribe two different medications, which may cause a drug interaction to occur. If this happens, your veterinarian may change the dose and/or monitor your pet more closely. Sotalol may interact with the following medicines: sympathomimetics, anesthetic agents, phenothiazines, furosemide, hydralazine, insulin, and calcium channel blockers. Contact your veterinarian if your pet experiences any unusual reactions when different medications are given together.
