    This was my first experience with mucinex DM. I've tried the others without issue. While it cleared me up, the putrid, overwhelming body odor did me in. I only took one and the smell woke me up 3x. It's everywhere, I even taste it. I was relieved to find others with this issue because my husband doesn't even smell it, but he hasn't been near me since I've been sick. I can't ... Show Full Comment

    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.
