I took this medication while on my lunch break and was not prepared for it to make me extremly sleepy. I read over the package and drowniess is not listed as a side effect! I am not happy with being so sleepy I can barely function at work! The cost is also not friendly! I paid $12.00 for a bottle of 14 pills a the local mart store.

Comment:
Though it did loosen the phlem on my chest, it didn't supress the cough very well - so I still sucked on a cough supprecent lozenge. But after 1 dose, I experienced an unexpected deep sleep followed by a feeling of dizziness and unsure footing when I awakened. No mention of drowsiness on any of the labeling. I don't think I'd take this again

I don't see much results for my cough for the last 3 days. NyQuil is much more effective for the cough and allows you to sleep ! My husband had the same cough and congestion but didn't find any relief at night for his cough. What a waste of money. Cheaper to use NyQuil instead.

I came to this website trying to find info on Mucinex after taking my first dose a couple of hours ago. I thought maybe I should go to Urgent Care, but I am too dizzy to drive. Now I see dizziness is common. The box should warn you. The Mucinex website just has cartoons! Thanks WebMD! (And my cough IS much better!)

Went to Doctor with 101 temp. Put on antibolic and Mucinex for chest congestion. After 2 days temp was down and coughing less. I could not understand why I was getting stomach cramps and dizzy feeling, until I read other peoples problem. I could find no side effect information on the package. I will not take this medicine again.
