Can I take mucinex D and benadryl (diphenhydramine)? I have taken mucinex D for a combination of a cold and allergies but just had an allergic reaction to a food.

In brief: Yes, but . . .

If any tongue or lip swelling, or difficulty breathing/swallowing, call 911 or local emergency services.
Need to avoid allergen & carry EpiPen (epinephrine). www.drugs.com Interactions Checker says there's no interaction btwn Mucinex D (guaifenesin & pseudoephedrine) & Benadryl (diphenhydramine). However, only antihistamine like latter is useful for allergies. Former is combo of expectorant & decongestant.
