4 doctors agree

In brief: Depends on age

No. The usual dose is 600 mg of guaifenisn and sometimes up to 1200 as a sustained release formula for an adult.
. Anyone can be sensitive to any medication so it may cause side effects in a sensitive individual. Rashes, hives, trouble breathing are all signs of an allergic reaction. www.drugs.com has great information on any drug.
