Brief Answer:
Rate and rhythm control + anticoagulation.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone through your query and understand your concerns. Treatment of atrial fibrillation consists of two components:
a) rate and rhythm control using agents like digoxin. Electrical cardioversion may also be used.
b) anticoagulation (for prevention of development of blood clots) using agents like warfarin.

You need to be clinically evaluated. Based on the findings your doctor can make the right plans for you.
