Can I take Coricidin, citalopram and metformin together?

From Ask the Pharmacist

The citalopram (Celexa) is fine to take with either the metformin (Glucophage) or Coricidin Cough and Cold (chlorpheniramine, pseudoephedrine). There are other forms of Coricidin products. Check your package for complete ingredient list. Pseudoephedrine can interfere with the actions of almost any antidiabetic agents (insulin and other drugs used to treat diabetes, including metformin), and may lead to a change in your blood sugar. Although an interaction is possible, Coricidin Cough and Cold and metformin may be used together
