I seem to be in the minority. Other than making me sleepy and having no appetite I haven't noticed any difference after taking two doses. My rib cage is so sore from coughing and runny nose and watery eyes haven't eased up at all.

Ah, Mucinex, for when you're in the mood for light green, scented pee. The pill is slightly larger than I prefer to take, but it works a treat.

It advertises 12 hour relief. I only got about half that. I took one of of the pills at 9:00 am for stuffy nose and not able to breath through it. I got great relief until 3:00 pm. Then my misery was back and I was not able to take another dose until 9:00 again. This is very dissappointing considering the money spent.

Comment:
I had an aggravating cough and post nasal drip and needed some relief, normally when I'm sick I tend not take medications under the belief that cold medicines aren't effective enough and I might as well just tough it out. A coworker noticed my cough and advised me to take Mucinex, she said I'll love it. I took her advice and I am actually impressed with it's effectiveness. ... Show Full Comment
