Yes you can: You took 60 mg Pseudoephedrine 5 hours ago, you can take nyquil for once today. Do not mix up too many medications , stay with one and take as directed. Watch for side effects

Be cautious: You need a doctors evaluation. Excess decongestants can cause cardiac arrhythmias and metabolic problems, and the comprehensive care of your condition should be managed by a physician.
