    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!

    I have had the worse flu/cold ever coughing, stuffy nose, the works. While it was effective in clearing up my sinuses and making it easier to breathe. I gave me the mother of all migraines. I can't even cough without feeling like my head is going to implode.

    I had great relief from Max. Strength DM, I haven't had to use it for a long time. The only side effect I had was my urine smelled while I was using it.

    I had a deep chest cough and a runny nose and I was losing my voice. The first dose I took brought about relief. I could breath. My side effects were sleeplessness at night, cramps in my feet, thirsty and not hungry. I'm on my 5th pill was going to try and get along without it but my nose began to clog up again. When I took this 5th pill I received immediate relief.

    This product was very helpful with a severe sinus infection that resulted in a minor case of bronchitis. The only problem is the size of the pill...7/8 of an inch long and chubby!!! One side effect that should be listed is choking hazard! I wonder if they could break it down into 2 pills; one that is time released and one that is not?
