Brief Answer:
Yes, they can be taken safely!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for this query.

I have reviewed the medications(Metoprolol, multivitamin and its active ingredients) and have found no reasons to suggest that they cannot be taken together.

When in doubts, always take medications at different times, say 1hour apart, so as not to worry of any possible interaction that may prevent proper absorption from the guts.

I hope that this helps. I wish you well. Thank you so much for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
