    This product works well, However here on Drugstore.Com for this Product, Mucinex Expectorant, Guaifenesin Extended-Release 1200 mg Tablets 28 ea, uinder PRODUCT DETAILS it says
    "Maximum Strength
    1200mg guaifenesin and 60 mg dextromethorphan HBr extended-release bi-layer tablets"

    This is incorrect. This product DOES NOT contain any dextromethorphan HBr . The Mucinex that does contain dextromethorphan HBr is Mucinex DM.
    So if your like me and do not want any dextromethorphan this Product is the right one because this Mucinex Extra Strength does not contain any.
    Drugstore.Com Please fix your Product Details for on this page.

    I take this if I get a sinus infection. I like the extended release so I don't have to remember to take a pill all throughout the day. I think it helps some but not a lot more than just drinking extra liquids. I haven't had as much luck with it as a lot of other people have. One problem I have with it is I get a tendency to develop a urinary tract infection after using it for a while, even though I drink liquids with it all day long. Every time I take it I notice that I start having pain over my kidneys & sometimes my urine starts to burn. If I drank any more liquids with it than I already do I would be in the restroom continually so I don't know how to avoid this side effect.
    Overall I'd recommend it for painful sinus congestion or a chest cold. Just make sure to keep a bottle of water or something nearby & drink it all day long.

        Use it to get rid of that nagging tickle in the throat which ultimately leads to coughing. So much better than cough syrups.

          I use this now in conjunction with allergy shots. The combination is making it easier to sleep. If I forget the mucinex, I get up and take it. Within a half hour I am able to relieve a stuffy nose and fall back asleep.

          I am being treated for allergies. Have had a lifetime of sleep issues because of undiagnosed allergies. The doctor recommended Mucinex along with allergy shots. Can tell the difference if I forget the Mucinex.

            Comments about Mucinex Maximum Strength Expectorant, Extended-Release Bi-Layer Tablets, 1200 mg, 28 ea:

            I have cronic bronchitis with an unproductive cough. Also, I have Asthma. This product helps to thin mucus so I have a productive cough and am able to clear my lungs. This helps me to breath better and prevents me from going into phneumonia.

            Caution should be used to not take too much of this medication. Always follow your physicians dose directions; otherwise, mucus may get too thin and cause aspiration.

              I get bronchitis nearly every year. Hands down, there is no other decongestant that works like this. AND I HAVE TRIED NEARLY EVERY KIND OTC THERE IS! This sucks it out and I will feel better within a couple of days with no antibiotics!! So, you are not wasting your money with this.

                I am a medical student and I could not afford to miss class with my cold and a bad cough that I thought was going to turn into bronchitis. I started it Friday at 4pm and two hours later my horrible cough quited down so much and I could speak without my voice cracking. I was able to stay awake without drowsiness and able to sleep without a troublesome cough. A day later I feel the cold is now going away since all the mucus is thinning and not making me cough. I did drink alot of water though because it made my mouth dry but that is tolerable enough for me. Try this and you won't regret it!!
