Can I take Primatene with Mucinex D?

Patient : I have bronchitis, and have gotten no sleep because I have this terrible cough that keeps me up all night. The doctor at my college gave me an antibiotic and Mucinex D. The Mucinex just DOES NOT WORK, and my husband told me to take Primatene tablets. I don't like mixing meds, and wanted to make sure it was safe to do this. I took the Mucinex about five hours ago, but they are 12 hour pills. I would just suck it up and not take anything else, but I am desperate to get some sleep. Please help!
