Time Taken: 3 days

Reason: Sinus congestion in head and throat. Date: 18 February 2010
Side Effects
Nosebleeds, 5 1/2 hours after taking Mucinex.

Additional Thoughts
Nosebleeds awaken me, clog nose, countering positive effect of Mucinex. Only nhaving nosebleed in one nostril, so at least I can still breathe. Consistent pattern over 2 years. I get postnsasl drip which gags me and makes feel like I can't breathe. although I can; true symptom is I cannot swallow. Regardless, I awake in a panic thinking I am dying. Mucinex relieves this.

Reason: sinus infection Date: 12 January 2010
Side Effects
I can take mucinex but not mucinex D because of my prolapsed mitral valve syndrome. Makes me too jittery. But plain mucinex works wonders!

Additional Thoughts
How long should one take mucinex. I've been on it for a month. The sinus infection cleared and then I caught a cold. Mucinex is helping yet again! Is it all right to take for long periods of time? I would appreciate an email answer
