Mucinex Dm Interaction With Coumadin
Bought some Mucinex dm today for cough and chest congestion. I also take 20mg of Lexapro. Drugs dot com says major interactions. Uhhhh? Can I take?
Ask pharmacist or Dr: This is very troubling indeed. And everything I've read supports what you found.

Mucinex 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. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

No: Dextromethorphan is in the Codeine family, but unlike Codeine or hydrocodone (Vicodin) it isn't an active opioid and therefore available OTC without prescription and unregulated by DEA as a controlled substance (unclassed).
