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 hardly ever get colds, but when i do they always and very quickly turn to sinus inffections.the product worked well for the releif of sinus congestion, drink plenty of water as this works well with the pill to break-up and drain the mucus. the only side effect i expierenced was no appetite..or even feeling a little hungry, though try to take somthing in cause working bodys always need fuel.
