Is it safe to take mucinex (dextromethorphan, guaifenesin, phenylephrine) with 40 mg Celexa?

In brief: No

Guaifenisin when mixed with Celexa can cause seritonin syndrome.
Besides, it is of very little use for a cold anyhow. See these links about both statements: http://www.cochrane.org/CD001831/ARI_over-the-counter-otc-medications-for-acute-cough-in-children-and-adults-in-community-settings

In brief: Better not,

the dextromethorphan component of the Mucinex combo would interact with celexa, plain Mucinex, just guaifenesin, is a better alternative.
Good that you asked, always exercise caution with multiple medications, best wishes
