09 Jul 2015 Taking the "Maxium Strength" Mucinex DM and didn't feel much relief at all, felt congested and had runny nose all the time and didn't cough up much phlegm. Not sure what works better but felt I wasted $25 for buying both the day & night maximum strength versions.

16 May 2015 The mucinex dm helped with the congestion, and loosened the phlegm, and made me cough and blow my nose, but it also made me feel real bad all over, with increased anxiety, nervousness, spaced out, blurred vision, feeling faint, lightheaded, no energy, weird uneasy feeling all over.

30 Dec 2014 I was asked to take MucinexDM after reporting to my MD chest congestion with productive cough (white blobs of mucus) that mostly wouldn't come up. It dried up the mucus right away. However, an hour after taking my first dose of 2 tablets, my body, beginjning with face and spreading downward over my entire body, turned sunburn/bright red with an intense burning sensation. I drank a lot of water and gradually the symptoms subsided. I'm not sure what it interacted with, but I suspect it might by my 60 mg. daily dose of generic Cymbalta--an antidepressant, but not an MAOI. I'm going to call my 24-hour pharmacy to determine if it is safe to take my 30 mg. Restoril/Temazepam sleeping med or to take my Cymbalta in the AM. Scared the hell out of me.

19 Jun 2014 Everyone catches a cold once in a while. One of the most common diseases is cough and cold. Generally when you catch a cold you do not see a doctor to get a prescribed drug. Instead you look for over the counter drugs and home based remedies. But if it is a bad cold which results into chest congestion then the home based remedies might not be enough. The best over the counter drug for a severe cold is Mucinex DM. - See more at: http://coughexpectorantguide.com/#sthash.0KQ2S0fS.dpuf
