Can i take following ingredients together? Ibuprofen 400mg, guaifenesin 1200mg and pseudoephedrine 60mg. Thanks

You can: But you have to know the maximum dose you can take a day of each of these medicines and their side effect. Ibuprofen for pain has to be taken with food. Guaifenesin to loosen secretions, and pseudo Ephedrine (ephedrine sulfate) for decongestant with side effect of rapid heart rate, anxiety and increase BP temporarily. Also consider all the precautions for pregnancy and ulcer, etc.. They don't have interactions. ...Read more

No: 3.5 ounces of Robitussin (guaifenesin) is an excessive dose in and of itself (usual dose is 15-30 ml, which is 1/2-1 oz). Combining this with 2 vicodin increases the chance of toxic effects. Follow instructions on otc medications if you want to use them safely, and tell the doctor prescribing the vicodin about your use of other medications with it. ...Read more

Possibly: Guaifenesin doesn't really cause emotional, mental or physical changes in most people other than loosening congestion so you can cough it out more easily.Pseudoephedrine hypes some folks up & decreases appetite, codeine can cause sedation & drowsiness.In combination, they usually balance out, but you may be more sensitive to one of the ingredients than another. ...Read more

Would pseudoephedrine as found in Mucinex (guaifenesin) D affect the results of a free and total testosterone test?

Would pseudoephedrine as found in Mucinex (guaifenesin) D affect the results of a free and total testosterone test?

Probably not, but : Pseudoephedrine PE , is very common in nasal and cold meds. It is a stimulant. It probably won't change the blood level of T. But it has many side effects if taken in excessive doses. Google it and read some comments . Just like many good meds etc. Too much is not good ...Read more
