I have taken Mucinex for many colds and sinus infections and it really works with breaking up the congestion in my chest and sinuses. One thing I noticed that is different for me than what other reviewers are noting is that I seem to get the best sleep with this medication.

The only two things I have against Mucinex D is the fact that the pill is so ridiculously huge and that every mucusy orifice will smell like the medication... if you know what I mean. Remember to drink PLENTY of water with it!
