What causes mucus plugs in asthma? I take Mucinex (guaifenesin) in am & pm proactively. I also have ob. Sleep apnea/acid reflux. Other treatment options for mucus?

The latter is usually easier to recognize by the discoloration and other symptoms like fever and malaise. Make sure you are treating the asthma. You likely need a daily controller inhaler. Keep in mind, other problems like COPD can present similarly. ...Read more

Find the cause; RX: Mucinex (guaifenesin) is a marginally useful drug. It would not make much difference whether you take it or not.

As for thick mucus, best solution is drink liberal amounts of liquids so you are well hyderated.
Also try a home remedy using honey+lemon. ...Read more
