What Is an AFib Medication Treatment?

As AFib brings the risk of having a stroke, you have to take a medicine to prevent it during the treatment of AFib. Anticoagulants, which are also known as blood thinners, are pretty common in this case. You can choose an anticoagulant from Warfarin, Apixaban, Dabigatran, Edoxaban, and Rivaroxaban. And you can take aspirin instead of anticoagulants only if you are at low risk of having a stroke or can’t take blood thinners. Having AFib means that you get a racing heart rate. Therefore, you need medicines to slow your heart rate, which include beta-blockers, calcium channel blockers, and digoxin. Besides, your fluttering heart rhythm is also a problem, so antiarrhythmics are necessary in AFib medication treatment.
