Mucinex D Maximum Strength Expectorant & Nasal Decongestant is one of the better medications for coughs, colds, and flues. There are not very many medications that can treat almost all of the symptoms together and effectively. Most suppress coughs, which in turn makes the phlegm build up and cause more problems in the sinuses, nasal cavities, stomach, and lungs because there is too much junk clogging everything up. Chest Congestion Relief This medication does an amazing job of alleviating the chest congestion that occurs during a cold or a flu. It does this by making the coughs more effective and productive so that they can clear out the the lungs. Cough Suppression This medication does a terrible job of suppressing coughs, but that is because the purpose of the medication is the opposite of cough suppression. The idea behind this medication is that you cough enough so that you can cough out a lot of the mucous that builds up in your chest - that is why it is called an expectorant.
I suffer from allergies that keep my nose congested most of the time. My allergist recommended Mucinex D and I have been taking it for awhile. It really helps.

Congestion Relief Congestion relief is the main reason that I take Mucinex. Since I have been taking it I have been able to breathe better. My congestion can get so bad that I suffer from dizziness. Since I have been taking the Mucinex I have had no problems with being dizzy. It is a little pricey, but it works really well. The store brands sometimes have you take twice as much so I don't feel that they save me any money.

Chest colds are the hardest colds to deal with. Days; weeks; and sometimes; for the unfortunate ones, months pass before they are cleared up completely. Furthermore; when your chest gets too clogged, you cannot expel all the mucous from your lungs. Guess what? This makes the cold last longer. Other then a trip to the doctors; and a prescription inhaler, an expectorant is your only option. Luckily, Mucinex D Maximum Strength Expectorant & Nasal Decongestant is available. As an extra added bonus, this stuff will help clear up your sinuses as well. This product isn't cheap, but it will cost you less than a doctor's visit. Mucinex aids in breaking free the mucous stuck in your chest. Within thirty minutes, your will be coughing it up, and spitting it out.

The 12 hour duration listed is somewhat inaccurate; more like 10, but that's still pretty good. Mucinex D is a highly effective nasal decongestant. The reason for this is simple; it contains real pseudoephedrine. Because of its illegal use, pseudoephedrine was pulled from nasal decongestant products. This turned out to be a shame, for the newer drugs are not as effective. I'm not sure this is the case everywhere, but Mucinex D is only available behind the counter in a pharmacy where I live. You don't need a prescription, but they will check your ID and make you sign; which will prevent you from purchasing more until the appropriate time has passed. Pseudoephedrine does not seem to agree with me completely. The side effects; for me personally, are moderate; including restlessness; impaired thought; and a general "floating" feeling. Congestion Relief Excellent: Pseudoephedrine is a great drug, though it takes a strange toll on me. Chest Congestion Relief Almost as good as an inhaler. Relief of Aches & Pains Mucinex D will relieve the pain in your chest, but that's about it. Cough Suppression It seems like you're going to cough your lungs out at first; but when they start to clear, it works fairly well to suppress it.
I have Nonallergic rhinitis. For that reason alone, I ALWAYS keep a box of mucinex in my house, and I keep at least two with me when I go anywhere. Nonallergic rhinitis is inflammation in the nose, swollen nasal membranes, congestion, and wow is it ever so painful. Whenever something triggers my nonallergic rhinitis, I can usually get away with taking 1 Mucinex and 20 minutes later the pressure & pain is gone. Some times I do need two, but not very often. I've tried a few other things recommended by a doctor, but honestly, the ONLY thing that has ever truly helped with the pain is Mucinex. It may be a bit on the pricey side, but I would pay triple the cost if need be. Yes, it works that good! Congestion Relief Even though Mucinex works great for congestion, I wouldn't buy it for congestion alone. There are other medications out there that will clear up congestion for a much cheaper price. Relief of Aches & Pains I've only used Mucinex for Nonallergic rhinitis, which causes very intense pain & pressure in your nose. I can honestly say that yes, it works extremely well for that type of nose pain! Cough Suppression Never used mucinex for this reason. However, I dont see why it wouldn't work good.
I have tried everything to help with congestion and mucinex d works the best every time! The day after I take it, I can blow my nose & actually feel the congestion breaking up. I will quit buying other products because none work as well. My doctor even recommends mucinex when I go see him with these symptoms.

Good timing, as I've been using this stuff all week. I've had an awful cough after having the flu and this has worked wonders. I still needed cough drops when the cough got dry but it has been extremely helpful in getting all the junk out but also helping me sleep but without putting me to sleep during the day while I'm at school. I also like that it's relatively safe for breastfeeding because I needed it when I had the flu when my baby was little as well. After coughing for a week, it starts to hurt and it was nice to be able to find relief when many medications were not safe for the baby. I definitely recommend it and even my husband will take it and he refuses almost all medicines.
