Brief Answer:
can be used, need to be spaced

Detailed Answer:
HI , thanks for using healthcare magic

Mucinex can be used every 4-6 hours if needed (4 to 6 times a day) and mucinex dm every 12 hours (twice daily).

If you are using 2 mucinex and 1 mucinex dm then you would still be in the allowed dosage region.
You would only need to make sure that they are spaced enough.

If you are using the 2 mucinex at one instant, then the mucinex dm should be given 4 to 6 hours after that time.

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions
