Usually yes, but...: Yes , but it can interact with digoxin and with verapamil, which are 2 medicines that some patients that have atrial fibrillation take to slow down their heart.

Yes: But be advised that, if you are taking any of the following which may be used with af, there is an interaction: warfarin (increases the inr), digoxin (increases the dig level), amiodarone (increases the tramadol level), Diltiazem or verapamil (increases the tramadol level), rhythmol (increases the tramadol level), Quinidine (increases the tramadol level).

Should be fine: Tramadol is, generally speaking, say for use in atrial fibrillation, though this is general advice and may not apply to your specific situation.

Depends: New onset atrial fibrillation is often self limited, going away by itself. But the cause dictates the subsequent course. Thus treating things like high blood pressure, heart valve disease, heart failure, over active thyroid hormones, coronary disease, and avoiding alcohol may be important. Some drugs are useful to maintain rate and rhythm. If needed, electric shock (cardioversion) is effective.
