Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

You should not use over the counter NSAIDS that help with inflammation, like Aleve or Ibuprofin (Advil). There is a risk of bleeding. Tylenol does not help with inflammation. Your doctor will need to suggest a drug for you that can help with this, based on the dosage of other medications you are on and the extent of your AFib.
