Can i take Mucinex (guaifenesin) md while breastfeeding?

Maybe. Try natural!: You probably mean Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm, which contains. Dexomethorphan. Not a very dangerous medication, but i would advise plain Mucinex (guaifenesin) instead. Better yet, in order to thin secretions 100% safely, drink from a cup some piping hot chicken broth (the real, homemade kind) with as much hot chile pepper added as you can tolerate, which causes copious thin secretions and gets the thick junk out. Seriously! ...Read more

Cough meds: AngelaM543 ~ cough meds and antibiotics to treat bronchitis is a well guarded urban myth that the Pharma world keep going with great positive effect on their bottom line and next to no effect on you, and lots of s/effects in some cases. Mucinex (guaifenesin) wont harm you, and it will happily do very little for your cough as well. STREAM inhalation probably does as much. Maybe more. Tumeric milk? Well.....?? ...Read more
