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.

Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm/nuquil to: It is not a good idea to take them together nyquil is only night time medicine for cold and cough, it helps you sleep at night as it contains sedating antihistamines, dextromethorphan, acetaminophaen and alcohol and mucinexdm cntains dextromethorphan and guafenacin there can be too much of dextromethorphan and if taken day time will be too sedating.So it is not a good idea in my opinion.

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

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.
