Good morning. I had a cold a few months ago, and since then I continue to have small amounts of phlegm. This is especially bothersome when I sing. I cannot take Mucinex because I take an MAOI. Is there anything to be done for this?
In addition, in the past couple of years I have found that, in my lower singing range (starting around "middle" E and below) that my voice sounds hoarse. Any idea why this might be?

Persistent hoarseness and increased mucous production are symptoms that should be evaluated by an Ear, Nose, and Throat physician, who will be able to make recommendations based on cause. Good luck!
