So yes, your combo is already sold as such. Just don't take too much together. ...Read more

Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more

Can I take cough syrup with codeine and mucinex (guaifenesin) dm simultaneously? I have bronchitis and in a lot of pain from coughing. If not, any suggestions?
Too much Rx: I wouldn't mix the codeine containing cough medicine with Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM which contains dextromethorphan. The dextromethorphan is basically an analog of a narcotic and you would be getting an excessive dose of narcotic which could cause excessive sedation, respiratory supression, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and other adverse effects. ...Read more
Avoid Cold medicines:
Cough in young children is extremely frustrating for parents. Unfortunately cough medications used in adults don't work in children. Decongestants in combination with cough medications can actually be harmful.
Using guafenesin may be helpful to help secretions stay loose. Increasing fluid intake and humidity in the air can definitely help. Honey (for kids over 12 months) may be a natural remedy. ...Read more

Can Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm be used for a person with asthma with mucus in throat...And a cough dry and productive?
Not preferably: I never like to use medicine that has dm in it for my asthma patients. This suppresses cough and can have deleterious effects such as increased chance of lower airway infection by causing the mucus to get stuck there. I prefer an expectorant to keep the cough loose, giving you the ability to get it up and out of the airway. ...Read more
? to early?: The benefit of the Zpac is it doesn't take long to complete but it remains in your body working for at least a week after you stop.

If you are concerned that your symptoms are getting progressively worse contact the treating doc. ...Read more
I'm 5 weeks pregnet and sick with a cough. I keep caughing up mucus can I take mucinex (guaifenesin) D?
Better to increase:
Would be better to just increase your fluid intake (water)
this will loosen the secretions, make them more viscous (runny) and you will be able to cough them up more effectively.
I would suggest avoiding all meds (except those RXed by you DR)during your first trimester. ...Read more

What are the chances of developing side effects from Mucinex (guaifenesin) fast max severe congestion and cough?
Side effects: There are side effects with almost every medication you take-over the counter and prescription. Difficult to predict who will experience them and to what extent. Taking the medication as directed can decrease the likelihood in some instances but never any guarantees. Sometimes it's a matter of do the side effects make you feel worse than the medication makes you feel better. Good luck! ...Read more

My body also feels sore and chilly. So no mucinex (guaifenesin) but what's going to help my cough?
Several: By prescription, codeine or hydrocodone are the best cough suppressants but they are controlled substances with side effects and potential for abuse and addiction. Benzonatate is good, available by prescription, and is not a controlled substance. Dextromethorphan is available over the counter but is weaker. A vaporizer sometimes helps. Time is the most effective treatment for acute cough. ...Read more

My 8 year old son has a really bad cough I have been giving him Mucinex (guaifenesin) cough but it does not seem to be helping.
Bought some Mucinex dm today for cough and chest congestion. I also take 20mg of Lexapro (escitalopram). Drugs dot com says major interactions. Uhhhh? Can I take?
Ask pharmacist or Dr: This is very troubling indeed. And everything I've read supports what you found. Don't risk a potentially life-threatening interaction but do try to find an alternative to Lexapro (escitalopram) w/ your doctor. It's not the guaifenesin part, so you could take Mucinex pills and gargle w/ salt water for throat pain and drink honey-lemon-tea- (bit of bourbon). Sorry, but you actually may find this to work better! ...Read more

Can my 45 lb 4 yr old take children's Mucinex (guaifenesin) cough and similasan kids cold and mucus relief together?
Is it reasonable that I buy Mucinex (guaifenesin) maximum strength expectorant if I have cough accompanied by phlegm?
No...: In order to treat a cough, you first need to know what the etiology of the cough is. It is not always a good idea to suppress a cough since this is your body's way of getting rid of substances that are harmful, like bacteria. An expectorant is usually not needed because your body will cough enough without it in most cases. To treat a cough, have it diagnosed by your doctor first! ...Read more
Is it ok to give my 5 year old children's benadryl and childrens mucinex cough? She has bad allergies which makes her cough mostly at night.
I would not advise giving these medications to your child based on the information provided.
I would suggest an over the counter anti histamine such as Claritin instead which is less sedating.
The underlying cause of her nighttime cough should be further evaluated by her PCP. Does she have a history of asthma? Is there smoke exposure? ...Read more
