Yes, it's fine to take Mucinex DM (dextromethorphan and guaifenesin) and Sudafed (pseudoephedrine) together.

What about the new formulation of sudafed that substitutes loratadine for pseudoephedrine ? Does this conflict with Mucinex DM ?

Oops... the new version of Sudafed replaces pseudoephedrine with phenylephedrine, not loratadine.

No, you should definitely not take Mucinex DM with Sudafed. Mucinex DM already contains 60mg of pseudoephedrine. I have personally made that mistake and you will feel restless and anxious.

According to the Mucinex DM label, it does NOT contain pseudoephedrine.
