This is my all time favorite medicine when I have a chest congestion and all that nasty mucus. It definitely helps break down my mucus which makes it a lot easier to get up so I'm not straining my lungs coughing so much. I definitely recommend this to anyone who has chest congestion and mucus ! Definitely worth the money.

I was recommended this product by my doctor, but it left me really messed me up. I'm a fairly small person and I think the dosage was just way too high for me. I had to switch to a different Mucinex product that had less of the active ingredient. If you are small or sensitive to medicines, I would not recommend this product.

I bought this product because I had a cough and i wanted to see if this product would help. The box says instant and extended relief for 12 hours. This product did not help with my cough immediately it actually made me cough more but later on in the day my cough did go away, not sure if it was because of the medicine or if the medicine made the cough worse. Every time I would take the medicine my cough would start back up again.

I often lose all hope and get frustrated when I come down with a cold because nothing works for me. When I found this product and it finally worked, I was so thankful.

I swear by this stuff. It’s one of the strongest over the counter cold medicines I’ve ever tried. It can take away a cold for me sometimes in just 4 days. A lot of urgent care drs recommend it so I always have it in my cabinet.

By far the best cold medicine out there. I call it the miracle drug and recommend it to anyone I can. When I take it I feel like I was never even sick in the first place it's crazy. Highly recommend

This is my go-to product when I have sinus congestion and/or a cough to go along with it, but still need to get through a hectic day. I am usually not one to take medicine when I'm sick, but this is totally worth it. It thins my mucus so I can actually breathe better through my nose, and prevents me from hacking in the middle of important meetings, lectures, classes, or at work. The only con for me is that I am super sensitive to most medications, and this one is no different. For about the first 15 minutes of the medication kicking in, I often feel the sensation like I am in a dream and dissociated from my body. I just have to avoid driving shortly after taking this medication, but once that effect wears off, I am feeling much better and more ready to tackle the day - even with a cold!
