Anticoagulation : Anticoagulation is recommended for patients with atrial fibrillation and CHADS2 score of 2 or higher for stroke prevention. Aspirin and Plavix (clopidogrel) do not offer the same protection. NOACs have not been compared head to head to determine which one is the safest. Any one of them would be a good choice.
