Mucinex is a multi-ingredient drug consisting of pseudoephedrine and guaifenesin. If you'd like to know more about how either one interacts with other medication, Google "pseudoephedrine drug interactions" and "guaifenesin drug interactions," although I don't believe you should be having any problems while on seroquel and lamictal. Here's a list of medication that WILL, however, interact with Mucinex, which I have looked into to double-check myself. I didn't see either of the two medications that you are on on any of the three lists, but here they are anyway, in case you'd like to see so for yourself: Major Interactions Atapryl, Azilect, Carbex, Eldepryl, Emsam, furazolidone, Furoxone, isocarboxazid, Jumex, linezolid, Marplan, Matulane, Nardil, Parnate, phenelzine, procarbazine, rasagiline, selegiline, Selgene, tranylcypromine, Zelapar, Zyvox Moderate Interactions acarbose, acetoHEXAMIDE, Aldomet, Amaryl, Apidra, Apidra OptiClik Cartridge, bromocriptine, chlorproPAMIDE, Citra pH, Citrate-Phos-Dex, D.H.E. 45, deserpidine, DiaBeta, Diabinese, dihydroergotamine, Dymelor, epoprostenol, ergoloid mesylates, Ergomar, ergonovine, ergotamine, Ergotrate Maleate, EXUBERA, EXUBERA Combination Pack 12, EXUBERA Combination Pack 15, EXUBERA Kit, Flolan, Fortamet, glimepiride, glipiZIDE, glipiZIDE extended release, GlipiZIDE XL, Glucophage, Glucophage XR, Glucotrol, Glucotrol XL, Glumetza, glyBURIDE, glyBURIDE micronized, Glynase PresTab, Glyset, guanadrel, guanethidine, Harmonyl, Humalog, Humalog Cartridge, Humalog KwikPen, Humalog Pen, Humulin L, Humulin N, Humulin N Pen, Humulin R, Humulin R (Concentrated), Humulin U, Hydergine, Hydergine LC, Hylorel, Iletin II Lente Pork, Iletin II NPH Pork, Iletin II Regular Pork, Iletin Lente, Iletin NPH, Iletin Regular, iloprost, insulin, insulin analog, insulin aspart, insulin aspart protamine, insulin detemir, insulin glargine, insulin glulisine, insulin inhalation, rapid acting, insulin isophane, Insulin Lente Pork, insulin lispro, insulin lispro protamine, Insulin Purified NPH Pork, Insulin Purified Regular Pork, insulin regular, insulin zinc, insulin zinc extended, insulin, lente, insulin, NPH, insulin, ultralente, Inversine, Ismelin, Januvia, Lantus, Lantus OptiClik Cartridge, Lantus Solostar Pen, Lente insulin, Levemir, Levemir FlexPen, Levemir InnoLet, Levemir PenFill, mecamylamine, Meridia, metformin, metformin extended release, Methergine, methyldopa, methylergonovine, methysergide maleate, Micronase, midodrine, miglitol, Migranal, nateglinide, Neut, Novolin L, Novolin N, Novolin N Innolet, Novolin N PenFill, Novolin R, Novolin R Innolet, Novolin R PenFill, NovoLog, NovoLog FlexPen, NovoLog PenFill, NPH insulin, Orinase, Orvaten, oxytocin, Parlodel, Pitocin, potassium citrate, Prandin, Precose, ProAmatine, prostacyclin, protamine zinc insulin, Rauwolfemms, Rauwolfia 1X, rauwolfia serpentina, regular insulin, Relion Novolin N, ReliOn/Novolin R, Remodulin, repaglinide, reserpine, Riomet, Sansert, sibutramine, sitagliptin, sodium acetate, sodium bicarbonate, sodium citrate, sodium lactate, Starlix, Syntocinon, Tham, Tol-Tab, TOLAZamide, TOLBUTamide, Tolinase, treprostinil, Tricitrasol, tromethamine, Twin-K, Ultralente insulin, Urocit-K, Velosulin BR, Ventavis Minor Interactions Acerola, ammonium chloride, Ascor L 500, ascorbic acid, Ascorbic Acid Quick Melts, Ascot, atomoxetine, C-Time, C/Rose Hips, Cardoxin, Cecon, Cee-500, Cemill 1000, Cemill 500, Cenolate, Centrum Singles-Vitamin C, Cevi-Bid, Cotameth, Digitek, digitoxin, digoxin, digoxin capsule, Ester-C, K-Phos Original, Lanoxicaps, Lanoxin, M-Caps, Mega-C/A Plus, methionine, N Ice with Vitamin C, Pedameth, potassium acid phosphate, sodium acid phosphate, sodium ascorbate, Strattera, Sunkist Vitamin C, Vicks Vitamin C Drops, Vitamin C, Vitamin C TR, Vitamin C with Rose Hips Answered by Jone Fazenbaker 1 year ago.
No interactions were reported. I also checked Mucinex D and Mucinex DM too, just in case. (I am a pharmacist, BTW) Answered by Christian Sieja 1 year ago.

This is hard to answer without knowing more about you, physically and mentally. Sorry,90% of this will be down to diet but rest assured that it doesn't mean boring or starving. I'll be careful how I say this: you need to eat appropriate foods as often as possible in conjunction with an appropriate means of utilising the energy provided - exercise. You need to eat more lean protein (eggs, lean meat (fillet steak/ chicken breast/ pork loin and fish) as it is harder for your body to process, raises your BMR, leaves you feeling fuller for longer and helps rebuild your body after exercise - meaning that you can go out and do it all again. Do not, however, go Atkins - it will put unecessary strain on your kidneys and liver. Also eat complex carbs, these are carbs that take a long time to release energy and avoid the glucose/ insulin spikes that will leave you sluggish. Think: Omelette and porridge for breakfast, tuna mayo on wholewheat for a snack, chicken and sweet potato for lunch, yoghurt and a salad for a snack and chicken in tomato sauce with wholewheat pasta for dinner. Eating regular small meals raises your basal metabolic rate (BMR). Forget the sit ups YOU CANNOT SPOT BURN FAT. Simple. Do exercises that maximise the use of major muscle groups: squats deadlifts, pull-ups. Gaining an extra pound of muscle (which doesn't mean getting bigger, just changing what you have) burns an extra 50 calories at rest per day. Not bad eh? I appreciate that you don't have much time but a half hour screaming inside doing interval training will have you hard as rubber in a matter of weeks. You can also up your BMR by taking supplements. There are a number of chemicals found naturally in foods that are great for shifting fat and can be bought from health food stores in purified forms: CLA (conjugated linoleic acid) helps to metabolise adipose tissue (body fat) if taken in 1000mg doses 3 times daily, Green tea extract is thermogenic (raises BMR) but don't take more than 400mg a day, caffeine is also thermogenic and can improve performance/stamina when exercising.

It sounds very good and you have it under control but remember. If you think that you are under weight it means that you are under eating that is why you are losing weight. If you under eat then your body will think that it should take from the supply it already has which is from the body itself it actually eats its self that is why no weight is put on and the person gets skinnier. it will cause serious problems later on with the bones. A safe diet that i eat is to eat every four hours so that my body doesn't stave itself and it knows that I am going to be regular with the food because if it thinks it won't get any food then it will store up the food it gets and make me even more fatter even though I don't eat much. So eat every four hours have anything even if it is a stick of celery just pop it in but in your case you have to eat more a healthy calorie count is 2000 a day unless you exercises then it will be 2500 a day so that your body doesn't eat it self. and your body will behavior correctly and doesn't think that it is on a famine. If it thinks this then it will store store and store. Hence big belly. Eat Carbs during the day and eat slow releasing ones like, potato's, whole wheat, oats, rice, bread. One large potato is a portion and a half. So watch your portion sizes because you will need to eat more to make up the difference and eat often every four hours. Good luck it works for me.

Take it easy and relax. It's easier than you think. I lost 33 pounds in around 2 months by walking on a treadmill and taking hoodia. This is no B.S.!!! You asked exactly and I'm telling you. After you read this you must GOOGLE: online health desert burn hoodia : just cut and paste it into your google search engine. I hurt my back and was out of commission for nearly 2 years so I put on like 33 pounds and felt like crap. My buddy Mark is a health nut so I asked him what to do and he said he had heard good things about hoodia. I researched it online and one of the best brands turned out to be desert burn hoodia. I got some and no bull, I dropped 33 pounds in just a couple of months because when you take this stuff you literally forget to eat. I swear to God I did. Food was the last thing on my mind and that never had happened before. I have a very big appetite and seemed like I was always hungry. Sincerly, desert burn hoodia can work just as good for you as it did for me. You can do it man!!! seriously, try some hoodia and if you do decide to, I'd appreciate it if you get it through my site but if not, that's ok, just get some and don't buy any of the crap the sell at GNC either. Desert Burn is authentic and 100% hoodia gordonii. Don't forget, Google: online health desert burn hoodia :and read about that and also read about hoodia. It will help you make your weight by vacation!!! Answered by Clement Bremme 1 year ago.
Hi there, Iv trained a few girls like you actually. one thing I have noticed is that girls that are vegetarian, especially ones that do alot of cardio or aerobics, normally have a very high bodyfat percentage, even while actually being quite slim. this may be your problem, we actually call it skinny fat. anyway my point is that since you have very little muscle you have a very slow metabolisim. So you need to build muscle inorder to boost it. Now, muscle is made from protein, and being a vegitarian, you most likley unknowingly avoid protein altogether so I would have you supplement your diet with a protein poweder, (you can get a soy protein which has nothing for animals, its from plants) and also make sure you add foods with protein into your diet. i.e legumes and cottage cheese. Heres 7 nutrition tips you should take to mind. tho obviously substitute any mention of animal protein for soy or casein (milk protein) 1. Eat every 2-3 hours (no matter what, you should eat between 5-8 meals per day) 2. Eat lean protein in every meal 3. Eat Fruit/Vegetables in every meal (tho not to much fruit, id limit it to 2-3 servings per day as fructose is easily stored as fat) 4.ensure that all the carbohydrates that you take in come from fruit or vegetables (i.e avoid junk like soda, or complex carbohydrates such as bread, pasta etc) BTW the only time I would ignore this is during or after a workout. 5. ensure that around 25% of your energy comes from fat, with a pretty even split between polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and saturated fat, tho for poly Id avoid Omega 6 and aim for plenty of Omega 3 because most people already get loads of Omega 6. 6.Drink Only non-calorie containing beverages, best choices being obviously water, and green tea 7.Eat mostly whole foods, except during or after a workout (that means eat real food, try to avoid processed crap) Oh and as far as Exercise goes, I can't belive this is still not common knowledge but Spot reduction of fat is not possible, Fat is not like a muscle it wont burn of your stomach if you start crunching at it, that burning sensation you get when you do crunches is just lactic acid. Best thing to do is do whole body workouts Involving big, compound movements, (Compound movements use more than one Joint, So where talking Squats, Pullups, Squats, Deadlifts, Squats, Benchpress or pushups, Squats, Barbell rows, and um.... Dont forget to Squats. also some Aerobic activity will help burn some calories, Interval training will help strip off loads of cals, and also an increase in NEPA will definantly help (Non Exercise Physical Activity) that means make your daily life more physical anyway you can, e.g park further away from work, or even walk to work, go for a jog on your break or even just stretch in front of the TV. But rememeber all that will be completly useless if your eating 4000 calories of crap every day so #1 take care of your nutrition and, increase NEPA and then get a solid exercise program going. (remember to Squat) If you have no idea what half of those exercises are, goto a gym and get a Personal Trainer to show you. Please remember that your still young, don't over do everything if you follow my tips it will only take slight adjustments in different parts of your life, e.g little more attention with nutrition, little more exercise and you'll get the job done, no need to obsess. also I see your mesurements are only of your problem areas. before you start I want you to measure everything, chin, arms, wrist, thigh, chest, belly etc etc. you will notice that some of those areas (especially around chin and neck) will tend to go first, and that should give you a bit of a moral boost, problem areas are called that for a reason, they will tend to go last. just think of it as mother natures sense of humor. Btw, Im a Strength and Conditioning Coach, from Australia so I do have some idea what Im talking about. Hope this helps Best of Luck Answered by Darrick Grossenbacher 1 year ago.
What's wrong with having a little belly? You don't need a flat stomach to look great in a bikini. A little round belly looks really hot in a bikini. It shows your a real girl, not a fake model. Flat stomachs aren't natural for a girl to have, and most girls look better if their stomach isn't flat. Answered by Malcolm Maud 1 year ago.
