Is it advisable to take Diltiazem, Warfarin and Eliquis along with Hydrea?

My husband has just been diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and was prescribed diltiazem 120MGXT caps once daily. He has a blood condition with high platelets for which his hematologist prescribed hydrea which controls his platelets to about 450 to 550 (tested within the last 6 weeks). The cardiologist has suggested warfarin, Eliquis, pradaxa or Xarelto and told him to discuss choosing one of these drugs w his internist. Will these drugs interact and affect the hydrea?

Hydrea (Hydroxyurea) does not have any drug interaction with either Warfarin, Diltiazem, Eliquis (Apixaban), Pradaxa (Dabigatran) or Xarelto (Rivaroxaban).

Currently I m taking 8 mg of warfarin daily for 3 months because I had an unspecified blood clots in my knee and also in each lung. My doctor suggested me taking eliquis instead, 5mg every 12 hrs. I haven t changed as yet because I wanted to make sure I was theraputic by having my blood checked every month now. If I do change to eliquis do I have to be concerned about wondering if my blood is thin enough? And I am miCssing some of the vegetables which I feel are more healthy right now because of the warfarin.
