Hello
Welcome to the Just Answer Website.

Mucinex contains guaifenesin and pseudo ephedrine.You should not take pseudoephedrine & Phenylephrine together.Both are Nasal Decongestants It is NOT advisable to take them together.This can raise your heart rate and blood pressure as well.So I advice you take one of them only.

Keeping a humidifier running in your room or using an over-the-counter salt-water spray (inhaled through the nose) five or six times a day can provide dramatic relief.Also consult your doctor as antibiotics may be required accordingly.
Please feel free to ask if you have any other question.
