Love this pill - so much better than the the usual "drying-up" treatments because you get RID of the mucous effectively and therefore cough less and feel less congested. But I tend to have a bit of diarrhoea with it and wonder if this is a common side effect(?).

I took the pill and it sent me to the bathroom four times in a hour . Which I think is a good thing. People think that going to the bathroom to relieve themselves is bad . the medicine sent my cold out through my waste . Vicks Nature Fusion and Robitussin peak cold could not get the job done . Mucinex fast-Max has 400mg guaifenesin for cough suppressant and vicks and Robitussin peak cold only has 200 mg per dose

Since taking Mucinex- It cleared my mucus, but has made me feel worse. I have had a persistent headache, ear ache, and I feel nauseas. I will not be taking any more of this drug. I will stick to my Nettie Pot thank you!!

My cold congestion, coupled with asthma, was making it really difficult to breathe. The pharmacist recomended I take the 1200 mg pill once a day during the day time, and NyQuil during night, and after only one day I had a much more productive cough. It really helped clear the chest congestion, the only problem I had - which is brought up in previous reviews - was that it caused mild diarrhea. I couldn't tell if it was due to the pill, or if it was a result of digestive sensitivity caused by the pill combined with the type of food I was eating (with spices/salt).
