Not prescribed Wafarin - AF

Postby NasserArif1 on Fri Aug 07, 2015 10:50 am

I wanted to share an experience of a family friend who although was diagnosed with AF was not prescribed Warfarin (although he was prescribed with aspirin - not sure if that would have helped) and he later had a stroke. I was curious to see if it is common for a patient to not have been prescribed Warfarin after being diagnosed with AF. It would be interesting to hear if this has happened to a number of people.

I think it depends on what was causing the AF, and maybe there was a reason why your friend couldn't have warfarin.
