Should take Metoprolol with caution

Hello ,

There are no serious interactions between Flecainide, Eliquis and Doxycycline, so you can take them together.
But you should take Metoprolol with caution, controlling you heart rate, as it can have some interactions with Flecainide.

thanks for your response, however I was told by doctor its preferable to take metoprolol with Flecainide to prevent conversion to flutter, so I was confused when you said that be cautious when using with flecainide, also my question was whether metroplol is ok to take with doxycycline and eliquis, could you please address this point?

Brief Answer:
Welcome back

Detailed Answer:
If your doctor checked your heart rate and prescribed Metoprolol with Flecainide, then you can take them together. Just check your pulse from time to time, to be in the safe side.
You can take Metoprolol both with Eliquis and Doxycycline.

Take care
