Awful side effects...not worth

Cel - 4 months ago
Gave me nausea for the first 3 hours and I was burping up the pill for several uncomfortable hours. Felt like I had severe acid reflux and it was horrible. My throat was definitely left irritated afterwards. I also became dizzy about 6 hours in. It reduced my cough by about 80% and made my mucus thinner and easier get out but absolutely was not worth it for the discomfort. I wanted a break from medication containing acetaminophen because I didn’t need it but this was not a good alternative at all. Maybe their kids dose would be better? But I’m honestly so uncomfortable and unhappy with the side effects that I will absolutely never touch mucinex brand again

Wow! Was recommended this by a close friend and it didn’t disappoint. Really got rid of my congestion & heavy mucus (sorry lol). Regular Mucinex never worked for me so i honestly didn’t bother taking medication, but she told me to give this a try and glad i did. It REALLY made a difference and i can function better having to go back to work.

I had been coughing for a month, taking various meds when a pharmacist recommended this. I noticed my cough subside immediately. It wasn’t gone and returned a few hours later but I kept up on taking this and it worked.

It’s a pretty big pill but it settled my cough pretty quick but it’s only day one and it seems to help slight a bit. Feeling better than what I did this morning ! No side effects either since reviews say they felt sick or dizzy. Make sure you eat a small snack to avoid that (:

Just getting over a bad case of covid and this stuff was a lifesaver! Stopped a horrific cough and helped me get rid of the severe mucus. I hope I will never have to, but I will definitely use this product if the need arises.

I was a little worried after reading reviews that that would make me feel weird or not work. Luckily, it was not the case!! I had a really bad case of coughing, and this medicine suppressed the cough in half an hour. I made sure to eat prior to taking the pill, and I felt no dizziness or nausea. The pill really isn’t that big, I’ve had prenatal pills bigger than this. I highly recommend!!

So I bought this thinking it would help within the 12 hour span or provide 12 hour relief. Nope, I'm still dealing with mucus and cough due to mucus and yes it's frustrating now gotta get something to focus on cough. Please provide fast relief for future products.
