Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.
Well, it can be taken together if both are used in recommended dosage. However,mucinexw should be used when there is a productive cough . It will not help to facilitate recovery from the cold. It acts as expectorant and dissolve mucous that accumulates in lungs. Wish you good health. Regards
