Hello - This is Dr. Shaun and I am a pharmacist with over 15 years experience.
Thank you for the question and for using JustAnswer.

Yes - Terbinafine and Theraflu can be taken together. It is best to avoid the Theraflu products that contain dextromethorphan (cough suppressant) in them, but for short term use it is fine. Be sure to follow the directions on the Theraflu packaging.

The reason it is best to avoid the cough suppressant is because the terbinafine can enhance the effects of the dextromethorphan. But again, for short term use it is fine.

I hope this information helps you. If you need more or would like clarification, please do not hesitate to ask.
Please also take a moment to rate your experience.

The Theraflu products that do not contain Dextromethorphan are: Flu & Sore Throat, Nighttime Severe Cold & Cough, and Cold & Sore Throat. The other formulations contain Dextromethorphan, but again are OK for short term use as long as you do not experience any symptoms of having too much of it in your system, such as dizziness, agitation, anxiety, or confusion.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
