Many years ago my docs had me on Coumadin and regular asparin (325mg). That was in the early 1970s and another cardio soon took me off the asparin. A couple years ago my current cardio put me back on "baby asparin"(80mg) along with warfarin for the reason you stated in your post above. Now I understand that this warfarin/80mg asparin combination is being questioned again. I'll probably discuss this with my cardio during my annual checkup.Odd my surgeon has me on both and cardiologist was fine with it. I believe it is an accepted practice as long as you don;t have high risk bleed risks as it makes the platelets less sticky.
