GOVERNMENT AUTHORITY SCRIPT

This prescription item requires a pre approved authority from the Government in order to get this item at the quoted price. Authority prescriptions need to be applied for by the doctor writing the script and can include reasons such as increased quantities due to dosage, increased repeats, use for a pre determined specified use, or the nature of the medication itself requiring specialist interaction. In the event that an authority is not granted on the script, the price will revert to the private price quoted for that item

WARNING - MULTIPLE PACK PRESCRIPTION - PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

This item contains more than one pack of a prescription product. Before this can be dispensed the doctor has to give approval. The prescription must be written for the total quantity or the prescription must be endorsed by your doctor "Regulation 24" otherwise we will be unable to dispense the increased amount. If you proceed with the order without approval, we will only send out one pack at the single pack price and refund the difference. Eg If your prescription is written out for 30 Tablets with 5 repeats and it does not have “Regulation 24 “ written on the script, the ONLY quantity we can dispense is 30 at one time. Further dispensing of this product could only occur after an appropriate length of time - usually 21 days but depends on dosage. In this example if you would like to obtain 180 Tablets then the doctor must endorse the prescription “Regulation 24” or the quantity must be written out for 180 and not 30. NB Conditions apply on the writing of a Regulation 24 prescription. Ask your doctor or pharmacist for details.

We can no longer accept signed authority forms from your doctor as permission to dispense more than one pack. Please contact our pharmacist for more information.

If you order this item as Private, NO PBS stickers will be issued. Once any prescription order has been sent the product cannot be returned for a refund even if your doctor changes your medication or you have an adverse reaction.

General Information

SOTACOR - CMI
(Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharm)

CONSUMER MEDICINE INFORMATION
This medicine your doctor has prescribed for you is called Sotacor

The information in this leaflet will answer some of the questions you may have about Sotacor.

This leaflet does not tell you everything about Sotacor. Your doctor and pharmacist have more information and can answer any questions you have.

This leaflet is no substitute for talking with your doctor or pharmacist. You should follow all advice from your doctor when being treated with this medicine. This information is not intended to replace your doctor's advice.

You should read this leaflet carefully before starting Sotacor and keep it in a safe place to refer to later.
What is Sotacor?
Sotacor is the brand name of the medicine sotalol hydrochloride. This medicine is present in the tablets or the injection that your doctor has prescribed for you.
What is Sotacor used for?
Sotacor is used to treat "arrhythmias", which is a problem when the heart beats too quickly or with the wrong rhythm.
How does Sotacor work?
Sotacor contains sotalol hydrochloride, which belongs to the family of drugs known as beta-blockers. Sotacor slows down and steadies the heart beat, reducing the effort the heart has to put into pumping blood.

Your doctor will have explained why you are being treated with Sotacor and told you what dose to take. Follow his directions carefully. They may differ from the information contained in this leaflet.
What should I tell my doctor before I take Sotacor?
* Make sure your doctor knows what other medicines you are already taking including ones you have bought yourself at the chemist or supermarket.

* In particular remind your doctor if you have asthma, bronchitis or any allergies such as hay fever, food allergies or are allergic to bee or wasp stings.

* Make sure your doctor is aware of any kind of heart disease, diabetes, phaeochromocytoma, kidney disease or thyroid disease that you have or have had, or if you have been told that your pulse is slow or irregular.

* Tell your doctor if you have ever had trouble with the levels of salts like potassium or magnesium in your blood.

* Remind your doctor if you are going to have surgery involving a general anaesthetic even if it is only minor.

* Tell your doctor if you are pregnant, if you are planning to become pregnant, or if you are breast feeding.

* Tell your doctor if you have been given Sotacor (or any other beta-blocker) before and if you had any problems.

* Remind your doctor if you have hardening of the arteries (cold fingers and toes or pain in the back of your legs when you walk).
What should I know before I take Sotacor?
* You should not take Sotacor if you have asthma.

* You should not take Sotacor if you have allergies, or problems with your kidneys or thyroid gland, unless you have discussed it with your doctor.

* You must not suddenly stop taking Sotacor, particularly if you also have angina, have had a previous heart attack, or have any other heart problems, since stopping Sotacor could bring on or worsen these conditions.

* You should not take Sotacor if you are pregnant or are breast feeding, or if you may become pregnant or intend to breast feed.

* If you have any problems with your heart or circulation, discuss them with your doctor before starting Sotacor.

* You should not take Sotacor with any other medicines or drugs which your doctor does not know about, particularly if they are to control high blood pressure, heart conditions, depression, hayfever, allergies, infections or diabetes.

* You should contact your doctor if you have any diarrhoea or other illness while taking Sotacor.
Should I drive or operate machinery while taking Sotacor?
Be careful driving or operating machinery until you know how Sotacor affects you. As with other medicines Sotacor may cause dizziness, light-headedness or drowsiness in some people.
