Knowing what to ask the doctor

Patient talking to her doctor

Take this list with you when you next see the doctor who is looking after the person you care for. It is important to be clear about other medication’s the person you care for is taking.

  • What should I do when the person I care for has an AF episode?
  • What are the treatment options? What should I know about them?
  • Will AF medicines cause problems with other medicines including any over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and supplements?
  • Are there any foods or drinks that should be avoided when taking certain medicines? How often do we need to visit the doctor?
  • What types of physical activity are safe for my loved one?

You’ll find our personalised doctor discussion aid is well worth using as it will help you when you are discussing AF with the doctor.
