Would it be a problem to mix Robitussin (guaifenesin) cough syrup and equate cough syrup together?

The cough reflex is a protective mechanism that uses muscles in your throat and chest to expel mucous and saliva that may contain pathogens that would otherwise possibly be inhaled via aerosol or to expel pathogens infecting the throat and respiratory system. Cough benefits the host by reducing load and benefits the pathogen which may then spread via aerosol. ...Read more
No. IUI is better: It has been thought that it may thin the cervical mucus but there is no scientific evidence that it helps increase fertility. Cervical mucus problems are a rare cause of not getting pregnant (unless taking clomid, (clomiphene) or some women with previous leep or cone biopsy of the cervix). Intrauterine insemination (iui) is a good option. See a fertility specialist (rei) if trying to conceive without success. ...Read more
Does red raspberry leaf tea or Robitussin (guaifenesin) cough syrup help fertility? Well timed intercourse and no success after 6 months of trying. History of 10yrs bcp
No: Neither the tea nor Robitussin (guaifenesin) have been shown to help fertility. 10 years of birth control pills should not affect your chances of conceiving now, but if you had irregular cycles before and after the pills get checked out to find out why. With regular periods most 29 year olds get prego in the first year of trying to conceive. See a fertility specialist (rei) for help sooner if you're worried. ...Read more

Yes, kinda sorta...: Check out drug-drug interaction checkers at www.Online. Epocrates. Com and www.Drugs. Com, specifically http://www.Drugs. Com/interactions-check. Php? Drug_list=719-8048, 1200-719. Then look for generic equivalents or read ingredient labels. Mucinex (guaifenesin) is a brand of Guaifenesin while Guaifenesin ac is Guaifenesin plus codeine. So yes, your combo is already sold as such. Just don't take too much together. ...Read more

My dr recommended cough syrup with guaifenesin to better CM for helping conceive. Will it still work with phenylephrine HCL 10mg in it? No dm though.
What?: I might be misunderstanding your question, but are you under the assumption that guaifenesin will help you to conceive a child?

Can I take cough syrup with codeine and mucinex (guaifenesin) dm simultaneously? I have bronchitis and in a lot of pain from coughing. If not, any suggestions?
Too much Rx: I wouldn't mix the codeine containing cough medicine with Mucinex (guaifenesin) DM which contains dextromethorphan. The dextromethorphan is basically an analog of a narcotic and you would be getting an excessive dose of narcotic which could cause excessive sedation, respiratory supression, nausea, vomiting, dizziness, and other adverse effects. ...Read more
Avoid Cold medicines:
Cough in young children is extremely frustrating for parents. Unfortunately cough medications used in adults don't work in children. Decongestants in combination with cough medications can actually be harmful.
Using guafenesin may be helpful to help secretions stay loose. Increasing fluid intake and humidity in the air can definitely help. Honey (for kids over 12 months) may be a natural remedy. ...Read more

Guaifenesin may help control symptoms but does not treat the cause of symptoms or speed recovery. Guaifenesin may cause side effects. Tell your doctor if any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away:headache, nausea, vomiting. ...Read more
I've been having a cough for two weeks now. I was taking Robitussin (guaifenesin) but discontinued its use after a week. What should I do now?
Cause: This depends upon the cause of the cough. If due to a cold (viral infection) or mycoplasma infection it will eventually go away, but not until all the damaged tissues have healed. This will be much prolonged if you are a smoker. It can be treated symptomatically by several otc preparations, but they should contain dextromethorphan (dm) for effectiveness. ...Read more
