I was diagnosed with SVT about 20 years ago and was put on 40mg Sotalol twice a day and have been prescribed this since then. Should this not be reviewed at some point?

The answer

Yes you should have this reviewed as every long-term medication should be reviewed at least once a year by your GP. Having said that Sotalol is a very good type of medication for the prevention of SVT and without it your heart rhythm problem may return. I suggest you see your GP for a medication review.
