Does Mucinex Work?
I am on the back side of the flu and want to accelerate hacking all of this snot out of my chest. Does Mucinex actually help with that? I really have no other symptoms left, so I am only asking about the plain expectorant.

Works better than nothing. Take 2. Also take some nasal decongestant.

It will give you a few hours of relief at a time from my experience

The 12hr stuff works for like 4hrs. Don't take the DM if you want to cough it all up

The studies show a small effect but it’s something.

Bring what you are taking to a pharmacist and ask for advice. They will give you a correct and honest answer for free.

Works for me. My doctor actually told me to buy some for a nagging cough I had.

Thought about it, but decided not to. I see no reason to get medical attention for something that can be fixed with OTC meds.

It does work, but be careful if you buy the generic. I got the Walgreens brand and had serious diahrrea from it that burned my skin up!!! Looked up the ingredients and it also contains polyethylene glycol, the ingredient in Miralax. Why that would be in the medication, don’t know. It is not in the brand name. Sent walgreens email and got no response. Never again!!!

I feel like taking it in combination with benydryl (which stops your body from c making the mucus) works the best.

It works great for me. Just drink lots of water because that helps to break it up and wash it out.

Guaifenesin is the active ingredient in virtually all expectorants, Including Mucinex. Any OTC expectorant can’t hurt with mucus and phlegm. Just use caution if you have asthma or ceratain lung or kidney disorders. The box is specific about which.

re: Does Mucinex Work?
I've been taking it, and other meds, for a week. My kidneys started hurting sporadically today. Is this bad?

I did just cough up some phlegm that came from way down, so that's always a bonus. It was grey, so that might also be bad
