I will be changed from meds to keep my heart rate low while in afib to this medication to keep my heart in rythym. Who has had this experience?

    Earlier this year I spent three days in the hospital for the purpose of changing to Sotolol to correct my heart rhythm. I had previously been on Metropolol, then then they added Flecconide which was not successful. If you have any specific questions about the experience, I will be happy to address them.
