This stuff works.
on November 21, 2005
Woke up a couple weeks back with what I thought was just the beginning of a bad cold; you know the symptoms - stuffy nose/sinuses full of 'gunk' and a persistant cough... didnt actually feel 'sick', but knew something was 'brewing'. I've seen the commercials for Mucinex that have been running lately, so, before I went to work that morning I stopped & picked a box up. I took 2 every 12 hours for about a week, and, I have to admit,this stuff really does work; My cough eased up A LOT, especially at night when it seemed to be at its worst, and, all of the 'gunk' in my sinuses really 'thinned out'. Needless to say, though, I did end up going to the doctor since the symptoms were still there. (hey, I'm a typical guy, and its true- we never like to admit we're sick - even though we are.) After listening to my chest & checking me out, he told me that I had Bronchitis, BUT, that taking the Mucinex daily had kept it from being/getting MUCH worse - he also told me to KEEP taking it until I was better - which I have. ( * A Note - I had Bronchitis about 4 years ago & it was GOD AWFUL - that's why I'm convinced that the Mucinex does work; I never once felt really 'bad/awful' this time & like I said, and my doctor confirmed, it was probably from taking this stuff on a regular/continual basis - NEEDLESS TO SAY, THOUGH!, If your symptoms DONT go away, GO AND SEE A DOCTOR!
