Q: Does this medicine cause drowsiness?

submitted by Brimco - 3 months ago
  • A: Thank you for your question. Mucinex® Fast-Max® Adult Liquid Severe Congestion & Cough contains the active ingredients guaifenesin, dextromethorphan, and phenylephrine. Guaifenesin is not known to cause drowsiness. Dextromethorphan has been shown to produce drowsiness in some patients. Phenylephrine is known to be a stimulant which can be considered non-drowsy. These three ingredients together cannot be considered non-drowsy due to the inclusion of dextromethorphan. Hope this helps.

The taste isnt bad. It works great. It just gives me watery diarrhea for some reason and hurts my stomach. I’d rather just use the pills instead of the syrup.

BT - 3 months ago, Verified purchaser
Had high hopes for this brand and product. Saw some reviews about how hard it is to peel the thin stickers on the back to read the instructions. It's not so bad. The product itself is very expensive and totally useless. Taking it 20ml each time, it doesn't last very long. Expensive doesn't matter as long as it works, but it doesn't. I don't understand why either. The active ingredients (cough suppressant, nasal decongestant) are exactly the same as the ones in Nyquil. Whenever I took Nyquil, my cough would stop right away but Nyquil made me really tired even after a long night of sleep. This product didn't stop the coughs at all. I'm almost done with the bottle since buying it on Sunday. Took it before bed last night. I coughed before falling asleep. I woke up middle of the night and coughed so much. Never buying Mucinex again.

So far the product seems to work well but I couldn’t peel the plastic off to get to the instructions…the whole label came off and was impossible to pull apart. I ended up looking the instructions up on the internet but it was frustrating - especially when you don’t feel well!

I can't peel the l label off to read the instructi. I tried two different times and more that 20 minutes later all that I could peel off was the whole label! I finally gave up on peeling off the label to read the directions! This is extremely frustrating, especially when I am not feeling well and just want to read the directions so that I can take a dose of the medication!

[This review was collected as part of a promotion.] I'm a big fan of Mucinex when I'm sick and this formula is a good addition to my medicine cabinet. It helps soothe my cough fast and breaks up mucus easily; helping me feel better, faster.
