Guaifenesin : This medication has a generic name of guaifenesin. It is an expectorant, which means that it helps loosen mucus or phlegm so it's easier to cough/clear out.

Mucinex (guaifenesin) definition: Mucinex is the brand name for the generic drug guaifenesin. It is used as an expectorant agent (used to cut the thickness/viscosity of mucus secretions created by the sinuses, pharynx, larynx, trachea and bronchi by actually increasing the amount of respiratory tract fluid). It is a very safe over-the-counter medication with infrequent side effects www.Mainlineent.Com.
