Guidelines: Our guidelines in the USA recommend anticoagulation for AF and one antiplatelet drug such as clopidogrel or aspirin for coronary disease. There's no need to take 3 drugs (anticoagulant and dual antiplatelets). If you have a tendency to bleeding, your doctor, who knows you best, may decide not to follow guidelines in your particular case.
