More info on Wes (UPDATE)

Doc is upping the Sotalol from 1/2 tab 2x a day to ONE tab 2x a day.

Holter showed a fair number of single goofy beats.
A handful of 2x in a row
2-3 incidents of 3x in a row.
And 2 occurrences of 5x in a row. She's worried about those from a Tachycardia standpoint.

The worrisome heart flips are just prior to his morning walk. And when Mommy gets home from work. Both points in the day when he's eager-eager-eager to get outside.

Hoping that the Sotalol calms him down some.....

Next: After 7-10 days, it's back to the Holter.

Sigh

Poor guy. I hope the meds help. Dan, does the Sotalol just act on the arrhythmia, or is it sedating? (Sorry if you already mentioned this.)

It's supposed to stop/slow the incidents of arrhythmia. Keep a steady beat instead of the jitterbugging he's doing now.

I had a feeling the dosage wasn't high enough (but I'm okay w/a conservative approach -- really) because his behavior hadn't changed one ounce since he went on it.

I like that conservative approach to meds, too. Hope the change of dose gets him straightened out. Will be following, of course.

Hopefully this dosage will work for him and his next bout with the Holter will show he's good to go.
