1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes, if adult

Assuming the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is 25mg per capsule, it is ok to take 2 with plain Mucinex for relief of cold symptoms with thick mucus drainage for adults.
Realize that Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may cause sedation and should not be used if the individual will be driving or operating machinery.
