Hello all. I was just told by my doctor to take Mucinex D for my post nasal drainage issues. I am now extremely hesitant to start any medication after my experiences with lexapro and protonix, and I wanted to know if their are any side effects and if so how often do people get them and how dangerous the medication can be. Thanks! Answered by Marlana Branon 6 months ago.
Mucinex has Guaffinisine (sp) in them. Different brands come in different strenght's. The brand name such as the Mucinex has more mg then say Walgreen's brand. Do you have a Dollar General or Family Dollar near you, they have a brand of it and its much, much cheaper. Side effects are increased heart rate, shakiness, jitters, dry mouth, insomnia Be sure and drink lots and lots of water with it. If your taking Lexapro you might be taking it for depression or anxiety attacks. If you have anxiety attacks that in its self will cause an increase in your heart rate. Use with caution. Did your Doc tell you to take a certain mg at a time or a certain amount a day. Be sure and look at the mg of the guaffinisine in each brand. They are going to range from 800mg to 400mg. One of the drugs in the Mucinex acts as an dilator in the bronchi and the other "D" acts as an expectorant, helping you to cough it out Hope this helps A great site to look up meds is www.rxlist.com I used this site allot when I was working.

Generic Mucinex D Answered by Daniell Reyez 6 months ago.
mucinex will act to clear the drainage from your respiratory system. it does not work the same way as the other 2 drugs you mentioned, it is a different class entirely. be sure to drink lots of water while taking mucinex, and know that the generic version (store brands) works just as well at about half the price.

Hi, I have thyroid disease and one side of my neck was larger, resulting in an ultrasound, followed by a FNAB. I used to worry a ton and I was sooo scared. Here are a few things to keep in mind. - Hashimoto's (which I have) is not a big deal, your other bloodwork can come back normal with Hashi's. They should test for antibodies and in rare cases those don't always come back as showing anything (as in my case). The FNAB showed Hashimoto's. - Thyroid cancer is unlikely but super treatable. My college roomates sister had it, my next door neighbor had it, a lady I volunteer with had it and the nurse at my doctor's office had it. They are all just fine! They had their thyroid gland removed and were good to go in a few weeks. - Hashi's messes with your menstual cycle for sure! At least three our four times a year I spot and especially if I miss a pill. Answered by Amina Fritch 6 months ago.

Alright here is the deal, I have been feeling like **** all week. On Wednesday I felt so sick I went to the doctor at school and I've been diagnosed with a cold. No big deal, but here is the issue, im supposed to be taking mucinex D two pills a day twice a day, until I finish the pack (which will take me into next tuesday) and I have been taking Advil to help fight a fever that I have been getting. Its only thursday and there is a huge rush event on saturday. I cannot miss this, so what do I do?? Can I drink while taking mucinex and I mean drink heavily, like 20+ beers over 2 hours but very possibly more (No joke, its called the throw up olympics for a reason) What else should I be doing other thank drinking as much fluids as I can (I have been drinking as much OJ and water as possible) and taking the mucinex and Advil when needed. I do realize that drinking and advil is absolutely a no go, but I am not sure about the Mucinex. I have done a little research online but the results are very mixed and unclear. Thank you for your help. Answered by Cindi Ezernack 6 months ago.
Yes you can get drunk from low alcohol drinks, but it would take you a long time and a lot of cases of it. Alcohol addiction is based mainly on the pleasure of being drunk, rather than the pleasure of drinking, so a few cans of hard lemonade is not going to make you an alcoholic, and usually even people who do get easily addicted learn to regulate their alcohol intake after a few benders just to minimise the hangover.

Will a mucinex d maximum strength and a 2 tsp dose of robafen dm cough medicine kill me?
or get me high i really dont want either, but i need to know.
Asked by Nannie Lekwa 6 months ago.
Mucinex is made from guinefessen and has no effect on your brain, i.e. you cant get high from mucinex any more than you can get high from Tums Drinking enough cough medicine containing phyelproplamine, detramorthahan or some other drugs will get you "high" but in a very messed up, nervous tension, freaked out way. I am guessing your looking for a "Lean " experience using codeine. Codeine is not available in any over the counter product. See your doctor. Answered by Windy Nicks 6 months ago.

Alternative Medicine to Mucinex D?
Asked by Jeannette Bainum 6 months ago.
i was advised by my pharmacist to use plain Mucinex. avoid the D component completely. use a neti pot to flush sinuses. it really helps. use Vicks vapo rub. it is an old, proven decongestant for lungs and sinuses. spicy foods initiate decongestion. gargle with salt water. google homeopathic cures. there are many that work, and are easily available.

Mucinex Alternative Answered by Ria Teich 6 months ago.
First of all, have a virtual hug. Secondly, I'm so sorry. I know it's cliche, but things can only get better from where you are now, I'm 15 too. And it is NEVER too late to change :) where you live is there a drop-by place where you can arrange appointments with serious counsellors? You can use a qualified counsellor to talk about the problems, and maybe ask if there are certain medications you can take to make your a.d.d and depression less severe. The good (and frequent!) counselling sessions should minimise the depression any who. I do feel sorry for you, with the amount that is going on, but I will be honest when I say you're just making it worse for yourself. Trying to overdose on meds, getting pregnant, sleeping round is the complete opposite of what you should and could be doing. When you hit rock bottom, don't give up and risk what you do have left by making foolish decisions. The counselling should also help you control anger better if you tell them about you cutting yourself. It'll be a tough task, but right now you're going to have to concentrate on yourself and nobody else. Study, study and study some more to pass your classes, keep away from overdosing, or trying to, stop sleeping around, it may be an addiction, but it's one that's going to leave you feeling empty. I do wish you the best of luck! :) Answered by Pilar Froncillo 6 months ago.

The Mucinex-D label says 12 yrs and older. There is a children's Mucinex and a children's Sudafed - that's the same combination as Mucinex-D. Answered by Erlene Vinion 6 months ago.
Mucinex D is not safe for anyone under 12 years of age. No one gets sinus "infections" every month. If she did she would be on antibiotics constantly!!! She has a definite problem but you can only treat the symptoms which are usually pressure, nasal congestion and headache. Many sinus medications are not suited to children under a certain age so it's best to ask your doctor or pharmacist about those OTC medications that are available. Watch the antihistamines...they will make her very tired. Answered by Carlos Utzinger 6 months ago.
