Maybe: Flecainide is a specific medication to prevent recurrence of atrial fib.Bisoprolol is a beta blocker and can prevent rapid heart rate if you go back to atrial fib although it is not the drug commonly use.You may have another reason that your doctor preferred this such as hypertension.Check with your prescribing doctor.It is always best to ask when given a prescription.
