Doctor insights on:
What for?: What are you trying to treat? It generally is not a good idea to take multiple medications, including over the counter ones.
No: Cold preparations are not recommended under 6 years. Refer to AAP and CPS sites for parents. Gentle saline and suctioning is safe. A cool room and extra humidity may help. All the best.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes safe, but: Which nyquil? Read the labels carefully and don't exceed recommended dose for either, best wishes
No: You should be fine. That is the max dosage recommended per day. I just wouldn't take any more today.
Not a problem: This will cause no harm. Continue your regular dose tomorrow.
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. Realize that Benadryl (diphenhydramine) may cause sedation and should not be used if the individual will be driving or operating machinery.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: There are few significant side effects or problems with Mucinex. You can have a beer or two after taking it. Wouldn't recommend a case or anything. Keep it reasonable. One or two won't hurt anything.
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 possibleSee 2 more doctor answers
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: Mucinex (guaifenesin) 600 mg is a long-acting form and must should be swallowed whole; it mustn’t chewed, broken, or crushed, as that will lead to an immediate dumping of the entire dose (too high of one) that is meant to be released slowly into your system over a series of hours.See 1 more doctor answer
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.
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.
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.
