Hello and thanks for your question.
It's my first priority to help you.

I understand your concern.

As per your description,yes you can take Mucinex DM safely with Digoxin.

However it's good to take them with a gap of 1-2 hours.

You should do steam inhalation and saline gargles.

Also maintain a good hydration.

Monitor your blood pressure also.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.
