Can those with more experience in Ad Fib tell me whether Anti Coagulants ie Axiban be prescribed long term ? Is there a direct link with AF and high BP and also alcohol use? Lastly. Should I exercise like I used to running yoga and cycling This site is so helpful. Thank you. I've had my first episode this Christmas. Terrifying. Before this I had terrible night sweats I now have stopped alcohol and reduced night sweats.
