What medical conditions would I need to be concerned about if taking both?
Expert:  Dr. Rick, MD replied 2 months ago.

Well, you have not told me anything about yourself...so if you a 93 year old 86 pound patient and just got out of the ICU last week, you might want to hold off on the theraflu ;)

But, 99% of the population can safely take those two medications like you want to do

Make sense?
