Any AFib condition usually requires at least aspirin anti-clot therapy.  If the AFib is frequent or permanent a prescription anticoagulant such as Coumadin (Warfarin) is usually prescribed, in my experience.  Other symptoms my be responsive to a beta blocker, such as a condition of tachycardia (high heart rate).  Some are even converted to normal sinus rhythm with drugs, such as Propafenon and othe more powerful drugs.  

As a minimum until I could get a doctor's advice I would take an aspirin a day, usually best if done with a meal.  Some people have stomach problems, so talk with your doctor if you decide to take aspirin long term, more than a week or two.  Many take a 1/2 dose (about 150 mg) or low dose (about 80 mg) rather than a whole aspirin.  For AFig I thing a whole aspirin is best, unless you are on Coumadin, then maybe no aspirin is the best. I take both.
