Treatment - Atrial Fibrillation - Treatment

Atrial fibrillation is treated with lifestyle changes, medicines, and procedures, including surgery, to help prevent blood clots, slow your heart beat, or restore your heart’s normal rhythm.

Your doctor may also treat you for an underlying disorder that is raising the risk of atrial fibrillation, such as overweight or obesity, sleep apnea, or an overactive thyroid gland.
