Cough medicines are categorized as EXPECTORANTS or SUPPRESSANTS, each may be sold separately or in combination medications, like this one. They're also found in cold formulas that include pain relievers (analgesics such as acetaminophen (Tylenol)), decongestants (pseudoephedrine), and antihistamines (diphenhydramine).
This product has a cough suppressant (dextromethorphan), combined with an expectorant (Guaifenesin). The purpose of an expectorant is to loosen phlem so that it can be coughed up and out. Take an expectorant with a full glass of water, as water is an excellent expectorant. Also, drink plenty of fluids if you are congested. Hot liquids, such as chicken soup, tea and honey--work especially well. Breathing humidified air also moistens and soothes irritated airways, and loosens mucous.
A cough SUPPRESSANT works by calming the cough reflex in the brain. While it's not wise to stop a cough that produces colored phlegm (colored phlegm has bacteria in it), suppressants can relieve a dry, hacking unproductive cough. Suppressants are also helpful when you're exhausted from coughing and need to sleep. DEXTRMETHORPHAN (DM) is the most common active ingredient in nonprescription suppressants. Dextromethorphan has come under attack as not being effective in suppressing coughs. There is research on both sides of the issue, some that support it and others that recommend avoiding dextromethorphan. I personally have not found it effective in suppressing my coughs. Perhaps the very best cough suppressant is one which contains codeine. Codeine can be helpful as a nighttime cough remedy because it has a slight sedative effect on the central nervous system.Read more ›
I know that other reviewers state that combining both an expectorant and cough suppressant doesn't make sense, but I beg to differ. These symptoms often appear at the same time and Mucinex DM quickly thins out the mucous regardless of whether its in your throat or in your nose. It makes it easier to cough up the nasty stuff, you just won't have the urge to cough over and over and over again. It works very fast and the whole time-release thing is a definite plus. I've only ever taken one pill at a time (see the beginning of my review), but I assume if things were really bad you could follow the directions on the label and try taking two every twelve hours. In any case, this stuff works for me. I highly recommend it! Just make sure you stay hydrated. It makes everything work better (the meds and your body).
