In brief: Yes it can

Individuals with asthma have an increased risk of developing serious respiratory infections.
One one first signs of concern is the development of a cough with green mucous production. I recommend that you see your physician to ensure you do not have a bacterial infection in your lungs. Continue your Mucinex (guaifenesin) use to loosen the mucous.
