Overview

Introduction

Solet Tablet is used to treat various types of serious irregular heartbeat (arrhythmia) such as fibrillation and tachycardia. It is an anti-arrhythmic type of medicine and rapidly restores your heart to a steady and regular rhythm.

Solet Tablet should be taken as advised by your doctor. It may be taken with or without food. Continuous monitoring of blood pressure and heart rate may be needed while taking this medicine. It is important that you keep taking it until your doctor decides it is safe to stop it. If you stop taking this medicine, you may get dangerous uneven heartbeats, which can be life-threatening.

The most common side effects of this medicine include fatigue, slow heart rate, breathlessness, proarrhythmia, muscle weakness, and dizziness. Ask your doctor what signs to look out for and report any symptoms you have. It takes a long time to clear from the body. You may continue to have side effects after you stop using it. Ask your doctor about ways to prevent or reduce them.

Before getting this medicine, you should let your doctor know if you have low blood pressure, drink a lot of alcohol or have liver, heart, or thyroid problems. You should also inform your doctor about all other medicines that you are taking as many can seriously affect or be affected by this medicine. Some medicines like certain antibiotics and medicines for depression and mental illness should be avoided with this medicine.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctor before taking this medicine. Your doctor will carry out regular tests to check your liver and thyroid gland. You may also be advised other blood tests, x-rays, and eye tests both before and during treatment.

Uses of Solet Tablet

Benefits of Solet Tablet

In Arrhythmia

Solet Tablet works by blocking abnormal electrical signals in the heart. This helps control the uneven beating of your heart and helps it to beat normally. It is normally only given by injection in a hospital when a fast response is needed or when tablets have not worked or cannot be given. This medicine thus prevents serious health problems that can sometimes be fatal and reduces your risk of death.

Side effects of Solet Tablet

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them

Common side effects of Solet

  • Fatigue
  • Slow heart rate
  • Breathlessness
  • Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeats)
  • Muscle weakness
  • Dizziness

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Fatigue
    Make sure you rest and drink plenty of fluids. Eat a well-balanced diet to keep your energy levels up. Do not drink too much alcohol. Do not drive or use tools or machinery until you feel better. Other things that can help include doing some gentle exercise every day, prioritizing and pacing your activities and having a short nap if you need to. If you are still having problems after a week, speak to your doctor, as they may want to change you to a different type of medicine.
  • Coping with Slow heart rate
    Splash your face with cold water and breathe deeply. This will help you to relax. Exercise regularly, eat a healthy diet and maintain a healthy weight. Manage your blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar levels. Limit your alcohol intake or drink in moderation, do not smoke and manage your stress levels. If your condition does not improve, speak to your doctor as you may be offered a different type of medicine.
  • Coping with Breathlessness
    Control your breaths by breathing in slowly through your nose and breathing out through your mouth. Sitting on a chair and leaning your chest slightly forward may also help. Increase the flow of air around you by opening windows or using a fan. Try to learn breathing techniques and do regular physical exercise. Wearing loose clothing around your waist and chest may also be helpful. Your breathing will usually return to normal within a few weeks of starting the medicine. Tell your doctor if your symptoms do not improve or get worse. Shortness of breath can also be a sign of an ongoing or worsening heart problem.
  • Coping with Arrhythmia (irregular heartbeats)
    Changes to your heart rhythm can be treated with a variety of medicines. You should ask your doctor whether you need medication or not. You can also try to prevent arrhythmias by limiting the amount of alcohol you drink and quitting smoking. Cut down the amount of coffee, tea or cola you drink. Lose weight if you need to. In general, keeping active, eating a healthy well-balanced diet, and having your blood pressure and cholesterol level under control is good for any heart condition. Your doctor will probably want you to get follow-up tests while taking this medicine and advise you accordingly.
  • Coping with Muscle weakness
    Tell your doctor straight away because sometimes the muscle pain may be a sign of something more serious. A lower dosage or a different medication might be needed. Try to relax the cramping muscle by stretching it and holding the stretch. You might massage the muscle or apply a heat pad to the area after stretching. Avoid exercising too much. Stay well-hydrated. Do not take over-the-counter pain relievers unless the doctor prescribes it. Your doctor may also suggest taking supplements, such as calcium, magnesium oxide or potassium oxide depending on your needs.
  • Coping with Dizziness
    This is usually short-lived and should go away within a few days. If this happens, stop what you are doing and sit or lie down until you feel better. Lying still in a dark, quiet room may help reduce the spinning feeling. Sleep with your head slightly raised on two or more pillows. Get up slowly from a lying or sitting position. Get plenty of rest and try to relax as being anxious can make it worse. Try taking this medicine at bedtime to reduce the symptoms. Drinking plenty of water and ginger tea may also help. Avoid alcohol, caffeine and smoking as it will make you feel worse. Avoid driving or using tools or machinery until you feel better.
