When you’re sick, excess mucus may be bothering you and causing chest congestion. Mucinex extended-release tablets break up the mucus that causes chest congestion, providing you with fast-acting and long-lasting relief.
Chest Congestion Chest congestion is what happens when the mucus membranes (mucosa) that line your airways jump into overdrive. When you breathe in an irritant (like dust, bacteria or a virus), mucosa cells are attacked causing inflammation and extra mucus in your airways. This extra mucus is one of the ways your body tries to remove an irritant.
Mucinex has a unique bi-layer tablet. One layer for immediate release, the other layer for extended release.
Mucinex SE powers through chest congestion for 12 hours so you can say goodbye to retaking medicine every 4 hours.

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.
