Welcome to and thanks for your question.
Well Dayquil Cough contains Dextromethorphan (cough suppressant) and Phenylephrine (nasal decongestant).
DayQuil Mucus Control DM contains:
Dextromethorphan (cough suppressant)
Guaifenesin (expectorant)
And Delsym contains Dextromethorphan alone.
So you should try Dayquil cough /Mucus control DM instead of taking Dayquil and Delysm.
Also if you have mild cough then you can try saline gargles and steam inhalation as well.
And keep yourself hydrated with plenty of fluids.
I hope this helps.
