how much robitussin (guaifenesin) is safe to take on a daily basis?

Robitussin (guaifenesin): This medication is meant to be used on the short term. If you require the medication to suppress a cough all of the time, then you need to see a clinician to work up the cough immediately. A chronic cough can be a harbinger of something more serious.
