Which Robitussin (guaifenesin) helps with cervical mucus?

Guaifenesin. Guaifenesin is usually used to thin the secretions in the head and neck. You can get it as mucinex. You will need 2 tabs of the 600mg tabs twice a day to thin the secretions. I am not sure if it will help any other places but it will not hurt you to try it. Side effects of too much guaifenesin are headache and stomach ache. Hope this helps. Good luck and feel better!

Can I use robitussin/guaifenesin to improve cervical mucus?

Very unlikely. These drugs are over the counter meds and are strictly used to thin the mucus of the upper respiratory tract. I do not believe Guaifenesin would have an effect on cervical mucus. Read more...

Can Robitussin (guaifenesin) cough syrup helps mucus fertility?

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...

Can Robitussin (guaifenesin) helps mucus thinner when trying to conceive?

Maybe. This was a popular idea in the 1970s and 1980's when cervical mucous was a big focus of the fertility evaluation. I'm not aware of any proof of that and the idea of poor mucous is given less emphasis today than before. If someone has not had significant cervical surgery and is not on Clomid (clomiphene) it is likely not an issue. To my knowledge it won't hurt either so it could be tried? Good luck. Read more...

Asthma exacerbation. Coughing, not wheezing, is the most common symptom of asthma. Mucousy cough especially makes me think asthma or sinusitis. Sinusitis often makes asthma worse. Time to switch to your yellow zone if you have an asthma plan. No plan? Contact your doctor. You need a reliever medication like albuterol, a controller medications like an inhaled steroid, possibly Prednisone & a better plan. Read more...

Bronchitis? Been coughing very frequently for the past 2 weeks. Nose is not stuffy but cough has mucus. Robitussin DM (guaifenesin and dextromethorphan) makes it better. Why the cough?

Acute bronchitis? If you're not short of breath, it would be unlikely (but possible) that it's bronchitis. This could be allergies, or pharyngitis, or sinusitis. The cough would come from irritation of inflammation of the pharynx. But you should be evaluated by a local doctor to determine which is truly going on and receive the appropriate treatment.

I am experiencing fatigue, cough (quality: barky, hoarse, or hacking sounds, with phelgm or mucus, chronic cough) (worse at night), . .. tried robitussin, but it only made it worse. Been going for a week now. Started as as a sore throat?

Dr. can check throat. Throat symptoms can be from a strep throat infection (antibiotics are needed), a cold or other virus (antibiotics usually not used), allergies or irritants, sinusitis, stomach reflux when asleep, etc... Usually, one sees the doctor if the throat is bothersome, recurrent, or doesn't go away quickly (mainly to check for strep and review details to see if laryngitis, bronchitis, etc., are present).
