First of all,thanks for asking this question,I work it out and give you a simple answer.You should not take any other products containing any of the active ingredients in benadryl or mucinex d during the time you are using them. A nasal spray may also help with nasal congestion. Here I think it is for your reference and maybe not a correct answer or sometimes there are a variety of answers for the same question. So here are more information as below and it could be helpful.

Is it safe to take Mucinex with Benadryl?

Benedryl is an antihistamine, and Mucinex DM is an expectorant/cough med. There are no listed interactions for mucinex and benadryl. You could take them both since they are different meds. Check with your pharmacist to be safe.

Is it ok to take Benadryl and Guaifenesin together?

Guaifenesin does not contain codeine, it is in cough syrups that contain codeine but it does not contain codeine itself. I really can’t imagine these two drugs would be harmful when together but its possible so ask a pharmacist. On the other hand,Benadryl will knock the allergies out and will also dry out the mucous. Mucinex will usually thin the mucous. I would just get Benadry with sinus, because it has both antihistamine and pseudophedrine. And yes it will make you go to sleep, and you will feel better in the morning.

Can you take mucinex dm with benadryl?

Yes, they can be taken together. Mucinex is a decongestant and Benadryl is an anti-histamine and they work two different ways.But never take any antacids with cipro, levaquin or other antibiotics of this nature.

Can you take Mucinex D and Benadryl at the same time?

Mucinex D is an expectorant and decongestant.It has guaifenesin plus pseudoephedrine (Sudafed), it has no interaction with benadryl. In addition,don’t get a cough syrup that contains any of the same medicines as Mucinex D. If it also contained a decongestant, you could cause yourself heart related problems doubling up on the decongestants because they are an “upper”.
