Limit Bleeding Risk in Patients Who Need an Anticoagulant Plus Antiplatelets

Debate continues about how to manage patients on an anticoagulant (warfarin, etc) who also need antiplatelet meds (aspirin, etc).

Many patients end up on "triple antithrombotic therapy"...such as warfarin for atrial fib PLUS clopidogrel and aspirin after a stent.

That's because anticoagulants work better than antiplatelets to prevent stroke due to atrial fib...and antiplatelets work better than anticoagulants to prevent a heart attack or stent thrombosis.
