Response: I see your recently had bronchitis and could not take mucinex (guaifenesin).

Other symptoms?: How long have your symptoms lasted? Any fevers/chills? Coughing up green or yellow phlegm? Trouble breathing?

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
