Cardiologist 's  Response
The combination of both drugs is necessary - unless there is increased risk of bleeding.
At least for the first year, you must continue / preferable onwards too
There is also the question of resistance - and the investigation to find in every case is not cost effective
Each drugs acts by a different mechanism to achieve the same goal
Good luck / Regards
Good day
