Yes: Aleve is a NSAID or antiinflammatory, Mucinex is high dose Robitussin or Guaifenesin which is a mucolytic, and nyquil will have Benadryl (diphenhydramine) or Diphenhydramine which is a sedating antihistamine. They don't have interactions.

Yes: Mucinex (guaifenesin) could keep you awake, take much earlier.
