Guaifenesin is an expectorant that helps reduce chest congestion caused by colds, infections, or allergies. It works by thinning the mucus in the air passages and makes it easier to cough up.
Dextromethorphan HBr is a cough suppressant. It works by suppressing the cough center of the brain.
A cough is a reflex that helps get rid of mucus and foreign particles in your airways. When the cough receptors scattered throughout your airways are stimulated by irritants or triggered by an accumulation of excess mucus, they send a signal to the cough center in the brain to bring about a cough.
Chest congestion is when the membranes that line your airways are irritated and inflamed, resulting in the production of thicker and more abundant mucus. This irritation can be caused by inhaling particles such as allergens, bacteria or viruses.
Mucinex DM powers through chest congestion for 12 hours so you can say goodbye to retaking medicine every 4 hours.
Mucinex has a unique bi-layer tablet. One layer for immediate release, the other layer for extended release.
