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.

Is Mucinex (guaifenesin) d safe to take daily?

Mucinex (guaifenesin) D: Hello, I often hear the very same question regarding daily decongestant usage.

The pseudo fed used in the Mucinex (guaifenesin) d will cause an elevated heart rate, blood pressure changes, sleep cycle interruptions and finally it may cause urinary retention in men. So avoid the daily use of pseudo fed. ...Read more
