Recommend against: Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm and nyquil both contain the decongestant dextromethorphan. You can use nyquil and regular mucinex (guaifenesin).

Should be OK.: Mucinex (guaifenesin) is an expectorant called guanefesin while nyquil is a combination of pain reliever, cough suppressant, antihistamine/hypnotic, and nasal decongestant. You probably should not take Mucinex (guaifenesin) if you have an allergy to guanefesin, and you should be aware that it can make you drowsy so watch out if you drive, etc.. Liklely, so can nyquil. Before starting both of these, check with your doctor.

Together can be okay: just remember that they have similar ingredients, you are taking the same thing essentially, talk to your doctor for more information.

Probably: Most over the counter mucolytic drugs have very few drug interacations; always best to ask the pharmacist but usually they don't interact with anti-inflammatory medications.
