Can i take clariten d and Mucinex (guaifenesin) cold and congestion together for the best results?

Is abuterol safe to give with this type of Mucinex medicine? Will breathing treatments be beneficial at this point? Treating my daughter with mucinex- cough, cold & sore throat medicine since yesterday (2/17/12). Her cough was tight and is now breaking-up

Number : Number one question one must ask is what is your daughter`s diagnosis. If she has asthma she needs to be on maintenance medication instead of just albuterol ( albuterol is considered a rescue medication in inhaler or nebulizer form and is not a substitute for controller medication). Mucinex (guaifenesin) may or may not help depending on underlying reasons for her cough, exacerbating/aggravating factors for her cough and underlying diagnosis. ...Read more
