Is it safe to take mucinex dm while pregnant?

Category C

Pregnancy
Category A is safe. Category B likely safe, no evidence in humans. Category C is no evidence of harm in humans for sure but possible in animals. So there could be some risk.

Is taking mucinex dm with a vitamin safe?

Yes

Barking_cough
There are no known interactions between Mucinex DM and vitamins. Mucinex relieves symptoms but does not cure coughs. Most coughs are viral & not helped by antibiotics. Consider taking Pelargonium sidoides (Umcka) and trying homeopathy. See http://bit.ly/1f6rJci & http://bit.ly/H97VWF

Can I take tussin dm with mucinex er?

No

Washing
There have been studies that show that honey works significantly better than cough / cold preparations. They do not work. My favorite thing to do for congestion or cough is Simply Saline to rinse out your sinuses, or the Neil Med sinus rinse which goes up and over to wash out your sinuses, but don't any of the OTC cough/ cold stuff it just makes you worse.
