Atrial fibrillation: I still advocate minimizing intake of caffeine,alcohol and prohibition of smoking and maintenance of normal blood pressure to reduce recurrence of a fib. A cardiologist is best qualified to evaluate and follow you, order appropriate tests and,if advisable, certain medications to prevent or treat a fib episodes.
