In brief: Increase bleeding

Both of these medications affect your ability to clot by different pathways.
While they do not interact in the body to create any toxic combination ,they do have an ADDITIVE affect on thinning your blood and creating the potential of having a major bleeding problem.These are both prescribed medications and this SHOULD be discussed with your doctor.

In brief: Higher risk of bleed

both drugs together create a powerful effect on inhibiting blood coagulation via different mechanisms but the risk of spontaneous bleeding becomes higher
