Mucinex And Nasonex
I found out I am 5 weeks preg. I was on meds prior to finding out. I used coltsfoot tea, allegra, singular, mucinex, nasonex (mometasone). Will this harm the fetus?
Probably not: Singulair and Guaifenesin (mucinex, not with d) are quite safe. Allegra is a pregnancy class c drug, but there don't seem to be no known bad side effects. Nasonex (mometasone) is fine. Coltsfoot tea has been banned in some countries because it contains tiny amounts of chemicals that can cause liver damage and cancer. Still, the tea may be safe, but the fda has determined the have indeterminate safety. ...Read more

Yes, if adult: Assuming the Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is 25mg per capsule, it is ok to take 2 with plain Mucinex for relief of cold symptoms with thick mucus drainage for adults.

Not a good: Idea. Firstly, when sick drinking alcohol is not good. Though it will be 14 hours after your last dose of Mucinex before you intend to drink reducing possible interaction with especially the Mucinex DM type that could have combined sedating effect. Enjoy your night minus Alcohol if possible ...Read more
Can you become dependent on Zyrtec or mucinex? I've been taking them for a week to get off a cold I have.
I am prescribed vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) 70 mg and this morning I took a mucinex maximum strength 1200 mg exporetant. Can I still take my vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine) today?
No, and why are you: Asking? If you are trying to OD, you need to contact your doctor immediately, call a suicide hotline and get help. Mucinex (guaifenesin) itself is just guanifenisin, which doesn't really have any toxicity even in high doses. However, there are versions of the medication that have antihistamines, decongestants and dextromethorphan, and all of these in higher doses can cause problems, although rarely serious. ...Read more
Diurex & mucinex (guaifenesin): It is not ideal. Mucinex (guaifenesin) is an expectorant to help you loosen up phlegm and help you clear the mucus from your lungs. Diurex is a diuretic that will dehydrate you and likely lead to thickening of mucus and phlegm. Diurex will effect efficacy of Mucinex (guaifenesin) but not the other way around. ...Read more
Mucinex (guaifenesin) D: Hello, I often hear the very same question regarding daily decongestant usage. My opinion is that I would rather my patients use an intranasal steroid daily with plain Mucinex (guaifenesin) as needed. 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
