It may not help.: If you're already using antihistamines like zyrtec daily and not getting enough relief, please see your doctor. There are other medicines, like intranasal steroids and singulair, (montelukast) that can be added to get your allergies under control, which will cut down on sinusitis. Also, make sure you, your home and car stay smoke-free, and talk with your doctor about how to 'allergy-proof' your home. ...Read more

Maybe: Just take a Benadryl (diphenhydramine) it'll knock you out. If you are coughing and miserable make an appointment with your doctor and get the codeine cough syrup and get 10 hours of sleep. It will help. Sleep works wonders and the codeine cough syrup is godsent for coughs keeping you up at night until you recover from your cold. ...Read more

I got pneumonia and doctor prescribed me robitussin ac but not working much. Is it ok if I switched to Robitussin Dm (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan). What is the difference in dm n a?
DM has: dextromethorphan which is a cough suppressant. AC just means there is codeine included, a narcotic suppressant. Pneumonia needs to be treated with antibiotics and expectorant, along with anti-inflammatory medicines. You can take the DM but it is unlikely to be more effective than with codeine. You can try a formulation with Hydrocodone like Tussionex or TussiCaps. ...Read more
Bronchitis? Been coughing very frequently for the past 2 weeks. Nose is not stuffy but cough has mucus. Robitussin DM (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) makes it better. Why the cough?
Acute bronchitis?: If you're not short of breath, it would be unlikely (but possible) that it's bronchitis. This could be allergies, or pharyngitis, or sinusitis. The cough would come from irritation of inflammation of the pharynx. But you should be evaluated by a local doctor to determine which is truly going on and receive the appropriate treatment. ...Read more
I am feeling heavy headed ness all the time. What should I do. My BP is normal. I am type 2 dm diabetis is well controlled. I am having dust allergy.
Need more info: If be heavy headedness you mean that you are fatigued, then there are many possible reasons. Without more info, it's hard to say.

Weight loss and/or a machine to help keep your airway open when you sleep helps ...Read more
I take an allergy pill once a day but now have a cold coming on. Can I take mucinex (guaifenesin) dm on top of my allergy pill?
Why does mucinex (guaifenesin) dm seem to be tremendously helping my acid reflux and allergies its clearing up mucus and I know its reflux from food I eat?
New discovery?: I guess you have made a new discovery on treating acid reflux. I can only guesis that the mucinex (guaifenesin) has left a coating floating above your stomach content thereby preventing acid and food from coming back- there is no scientific proof. It appears that you might have considered your "post-nasal" drips to be from allergy when it is from reflux. ...Read more
