  • 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!
    I do not know what to do....I am to see a new Cardio next week!

    Ed on Feb, 23, 2014:

    Sustained release niacin has a much higher incidence of adverse liver effects such as raised liver enzymes than does immediate release niacin. Although 2,000 mg of sustained release niacin is the recommended dose, adverse liver effects can occur with as little as 500 mg, although the incidence is much lower at a lower dose.
