Pros: Really breaks up the crap and you can breathe.
Cons: It totally knocks me out. Too expensive, buy generic.
I've used Mucinex and yes it is the same stuff (Guaifenesin) that's in cough syrup. I now found a generic that's like 2 bucks at Fred's.If you don't live near Fred's you will have to buy the generic nasty syrup. The same thing for so much less. It also has a decongestant in this particular bottle. It knocks me totally out. Does anyone know if it's the decongestant or the expectorant that makes you drowsy?? It really helps speed up getting rid of the chest congestion and sinus infection. D on't drive or anythng be it feels like you are dreamy or drunk or sleepy. Don't get screwed buying the expensive stuff. I'd rather save 5 or more bucks and take the syrup, just make sure the dosage is the same so you don't screwed on the amount for the money. I think that there are Fred's all over the South. If not, Kroger has the syrup expectorant.
