Sotalol HCl is a drug used in the treatment of ventricular tachycardia in people.  It is used extra-label in the treatment of ventricular tachycardias and, possibly, supraventricular tachycardias in dogs and cats.  It is most often used in boxers with arrhythmogenic cardiomyopathy and, in dogs with ventricular tachycardia that are refractory to lidocaine and procainamide.

Sotalol Hydrochloride tablets are available in 80 mg and 120 mg  in 100 count bottles.

Administration

Use as directed by your veterinarian.

Precautions

Contraindications / Precautions / Warnings

Sotalol is a weak, non-specific beta-blocker, but it is still considered contraindicated in patients with asthma, sinus bradycardia, 2nd or 3rd degree heart block (unless artificially paced), long Q-T syndromes, cardiogenic shock or uncontrolled congestive heart failure (CHF). Because of the potential for negative inotropic effects, use with caution in CHF. Also, use with caution in patients with diabetes mellitus or hyperthyroidism (may mask signs). Use with caution in patients with renal dysfunction; dosage intervals may need to be extended.

Adverse Effects

Primary concerns with sotalol in dogs are the potential for negative inotropic, chronotropic, and proarrhythmic effects. These effects generally are not clinically important if dosage is not excessive. Other potential adverse effects include dyspnea, bronchospasm, fatigue/dizziness, nausea, and vomiting. Sotalol’s beta blocking effects can worsen syncope or cause lethargy, particularly if the ventricular tachyarrhythmia coexists with intermittent bradycardia (eg, AV block).
