What Medications Can I Take Except Warfarin?

Warfarin (Coumadin) is the most common anticoagulant medicine for AFib patients to prevent stroke. If you can’t stand the side effects from it, you still have some other options, such as apixaban (Eliquis), dabigatran (Pradaxa, Xarelto), heparin, and aspirin.
