    I had terrible post-nasal drip and head congestion from a cold and decided to try Mucinex D. It helped me enormously. I didn't even realize my hearing had been affected until I took it and could suddenly hear again! I felt so much better I thought my cold was gone, until 12 hours later when it wore off and I felt miserable again. Great stuff. I wouldn't dare take it at night, but a morning ... Show Full Comment

I have had a chest x-ray, cat scan and lots of blood work and everything was good. ... Show Full Comment

    This medicine works wonders for me when I have a cold. Within half an hour of taking it, I don't feel sick anymore. I'm a teacher, so I'm exposed to a lot of germs, but I don't like taking off, so this helps me make it through the day. It does increase your blood pressure, and it makes it harder to sleep if you take it too late in the evening, but it is great for giving you energy ... Show Full Comment
