Are Propafenone, Diltiazem and Eliquis appropriate for someone who has an atrial flutter or fibrillation?
Please refer to the detailed answer below
After going through the medical details provided by you I understand your concern for your health and I would like to tell you that the medical prescription which you have been prescribed is good and proper.
Atrial flutter or fibrillation is a rhythm abnormality in which the possibility of clot formation is high inside atria so anticoagulants are must in order to prevent the risk of thrombus formation which can, later on, lead to stroke.
I hope this information will answer your query.
Eliquis and Pradaxa both are a newer drug with an advantage over Coumadin of not requiring routine in monitoring.
Eliquis is a good choice in cases of non-valvular atrial flutter or fibrillation.
