    Used only two times. Broke out in itchy rash, heart pounding, nausea, tongue and lips swelled up. Very frightning experience. I don't take a lot of medications. Needed to get help with congestion. Three days later, still have the rash and nausea. Lips are still swelled up. Horrible experience.

    Had really bad sore throat, larygitis and cough - this pill really helped with the congestion and cough- but within 3 hours I had 3 bouts of diareah- very sudden with no warning.

    My doctor recommended Mucinex DM for a viral infection that went to my chest. I have asthma as well. Mucinex DM subdued my coughing for about 10 hours and then it came back. After the second pill, it also made me kind of itch. I haven't decided yet if I am allergic to it or not. I am petite, 5 foot 105lbs. Most medicines are too much for my size.

    The first time I took this it helped me stop coughing,however i slept the entire day away! When i did get up and try to function i was loopy and light headed. Needless to say i went straight back to bed. so i didnt take it the normal every 12 hours. It works great on curing the cough, but be prepared to feel drowsy!
