Drugs for Atrial Fibrillation

Atrial fibrillation (also called AFib or AF) occurs when abnormal electrical impulses are suddenly generated in the upper chambers of the heart (atria). These impulses override the heart''s natural pacemaker, which can no longer control rhythm of the heart. If diagnosed with AFib, the doctor may prescribe blood thinners to lower the risk of stroke. These anti-coagulant drugs can interact with some foods, supplements, or even other medications. Be sure to ask your doctor what''s safe to eat, and what foods to avoid, while taking your medications.
