Mucinex

I know most of us have heard of taking cough syrup to help with cm issues. But I'm wondering if anyone has tried Mucinex expectorant. The active ingredient, guaifenesin, is the same as that in Robitussin expectorant. I'm taking clomid, and it dries me up quite a bit, so I'm looking into things that may help.

I would not recommend Mucinex for that. It is fomulated for the lungs and probably will have no real effect on cervical mucus.

Yes, Mucinex works the same way, only it has 600 mg, instead of 200 mg, so you can just take it once a day, and it works great. I used it, and it helped a lot. Just make sure you get the right kind of mucinex. There are two different kinds. You want to get the one where the only active ingredient is guaifenesin. The other one helps other symptoms for the cold/flu. Guaifensen is to thin mucus...in the lungs or anywhere else. If you searched info on it, you'd see it's been said you can take Robitussen OR Mucinex. I sure would rather swallow one pill a day, than take several servings of syrup throughout the day.... Good Luck!
