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.

Same medication: Mucinex (guaifenesin) and Robitussin are both Guaifenesin. The maximum dosage from all sources is 2400 mg/day. Make sure to drink copious water and not exceed the total dosage per 24 hours. The DM part is the cough suppressant dextromethorphan.

Yes: Claritin is an antihistamine and will dry up mucous. Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm is a mucous thinner (guiafenisin) and a non-narcotic cough supressant.

Can I take Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm and Vicks nyquil together?

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.
