Anticoagulant medicines are often seen in the prescription a doctor provides for his AFib patient. However, it is not a drug for AFib, but for preventing stroke in AFib. Anticoagulants are not necessary either in AFib medication or in the prevention of stroke. Some people may be allergic to anticoagulants or have strong reaction to their side effects, so alternatives should be taken in stead of them, like aspirin.   Related FAQs:
