Can I drink alcohol 3 hours after taking Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm?

Drinking when ill. You know the warnings on these products are there for a reason. If you are coughing, congested, and ill, why would you drink alcohol? Why would you take in a product to make you more dehydrated to make it harder to clear your mucous and get better?
If you're not addict. 1 tablespoon Mucinex (guaifenesin) dm or anything else dm and 1 drink are not problems. But is either is a habit or worse then the combination will be harmful-- and its not the Mucinex (guaifenesin) part, its the dm part and the amount and if dependent on alcohol or dm-- dm is a common drug of abuse in not smart people.

I'm. Alcohol will relieve anxiety in the short-term. However it is likely to make your anxiety condition worse in the long-term. I suggest you see your family doctor to discuss treatments for your anxiety. These can take many forms, including benzodiazepines antidepressants and counseling. Newer antidepressants are very effective for many people in relieving anxiety symptoms. Hope this helps. Read more...
