In brief: No
Although it theoretically makes sense to use anti arrhythmic medications which target the parasympathetic (vagal) nervous system, studies don't seem to show a difference in success using this approach.

In brief: Than others?
Yes, a fib can occur for many reasons.
If the cause is vagal overstimulation, then treatment is different than if af was post-op, or due to sick cardiac muscle, or adrenergic overactivity. See http://www.A-fib.Com/vagala-fib.Htm#1.
