I'm not sure about this and I can't find any information on this so your best bet is to ask either our doctor or pharmasist. they should have the answer to your question. sorry that I couldn't help. Good luck Laneyzig! ~~~happybrandee~~~

From personal experience, the Z-pack is prescribed for upper respiratory bacteria; i.e., sinus infections, strep throat, coughs, and so on. It is an antibiotic. Mucinex DM is a decongestant, which dries up the mucous from above infections. I have taken both medications together on many occasions. BUT, if you have problems with allergies, sensitivities to any medication at all, or have a compromised immune system, you definitely should check with your doctor. If you can't check with the doctor for some reason, ask the pharmacist.

Hope that you feel better soon!!
