Was removed from Metoprolol and RX Sotalol! Within 2 days rash (itchy bumps) started at nape of neck! After seeing 5 Drs. used method of elimination to stop! One Dr. put me on Steroids for 5 days, did help a little!
I discontinued Sotalol on my own after seeing 2 ElectroPhysiologists!
Going back on Metoprolol with the Magnesium. Have had very few AFib attacks but the rash continues to grow and is to the point of incapacitating me!
