No: You shouldn't use both at the same time. If you want to switch from one to the other, wait until it is time for your next dose of the panadol, (acetaminophen) but then take the actifed instead.

There aren't any: Let me explain - "Cet or cette" at the end of medications means it contains acetaminophen or tylenol.

It also comes in sustained release long-acting versions in doses ranging from 10mg - 80 mg. ...Read more

Does Mucinex (guaifenesin) d have acetaminophen? Can you take Coricidin after you've taken Mucinex (guaifenesin) d

Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM?: Mucinex dm is guaifenesin, a mucolytic with dextromethorphan used as cough suppressant. Why the combination beats me, lol. Coricidin will be an antihistamine and if with a d will be a decongestant like a pseudoephedrin. These are all different medicines that can be mixed to treat both secretions from the lungs, and the nose and sinuses. So the answer is yes, they can be mixed. ...Read more
