Rosyg has raised the issue of anticoagulants and when they should be prescribed. I wondered if everyone on here had a firm diagnosis before warfarin or NOAC was prescribed. I was pretty sure that I had AF and so was my GP but took about 8 months before this was confirmed by ECG and during that time I did feel very vulnerable. Assuming that the person would be prescribed anticoagulants if there was a firm diagnosis, is there an argument for earlier anticoagulants "just in case" or would this be too dangerous?
