I am taking sotalol for my arrythmia. Should I stop if my heart rate is slow?

Ask your doctor. If your heart rate is really low and one is symptomatic such as dizziness etc. Or say it is below 50, then one should consider decreasing or stopping but you should always check with your doctor first before doing so.
