Does anyone know if A-FIB can be temporary and go away? Can it be caused by a prescription drug reaction? My mother (in her 70’s) had A-FIB right after starting a cholesterol medication, but the doctor denied that it was the cause, and later said that her A-FIB had gone away (she had stopped the medication). A new doctor said that it never really goes away.
