In brief: Verify cardiac statu

Sertraline has an interaction with amiodarone.
Levels are increased. Sotalol and amiodarone both contain beta-blocking properties which can be depressing. Sotalol can pose a risk of serious ventricular arrhythmias, hopefully ... negated by the amiodarone. You must insure that your cardiac status is entirely normal to avoid the risk of serious arrhythmias which can cause sudden death.
