Avatar f tn It requires you to take upto, but not limited to 2400mg of guaifenesin (Mucinex) daily. He says that with this protocol, you will notice that your symptoms will at first become worse, but will gradually disappear. He swears this is the way to reverse fibro. Now, when I heard this, I was obviously a little skepticle (who wouldn't be when you are told that Mucinex is the cure for fibro!) So I wanted to know if anyone here has heard of or tried this approach.
Avatar n tn Try drinking more water, this is the easiest way to thin secretions. Also try the guaifenesin(Mucinex), this is an expectorant and will think mucus also. Your MD will probably give you some meds as well.
Avatar n tn My sinuses are still draining down the back of my throat (and God only knows how much gunk is in my lungs because of this) but it is MUCH more manageable. Let me explain how drastic of a change it was. I work graveyards and my work week ended thursday morning. I knew I only had 4 saline packets left for my sinus cleanse thing so I went straight from work to Walgreens and bought a 100 pack.
1102149 tn?1259696562 I took over the counter generic mucinex with only active ingredient guafenesin in Oct. and got my BFP in Nov. So, I can't say it helped but who knows. I did notice more CM throughout my cycle and not really being dry like I'm used to. LOL I hope this helps. I have heard people talk about pre-seed and EPO too. Doesn't hurt to try stuff. Good luck...
363110 tn?1340924019 I don't trust any chemicals, pills, anything in your body that can cause a reaction. I would stay away from anything artificial like mucinex or preseed, and just go at it like you did when you were not trying and limit any medications that you are currently taking or stop them entirely let your body detox. 5. I think its a mistake but "Human beings hardly ever learn from the experience of others (or advice). They learn; when they do, which isn't often, on their own, the hard way.
702091 tn?1228423719 As far as the congestion, my best recommendation for you for an over the counter medication is Mucinex to help clear the congestion. It has guaifenesin in it, and it loosens all the secretions to help him cough it out more easily. Give him just regular children's Mucinex without the cough suppressant in it during the day, and give him the one with the supressant in it at night so he can sleep.
522984 tn?1299512681 Until recently, Guaifenesin in pill format, had usually required a doctor's prescription but you can now buy Mucinex over the counter. Take 200mg of Mucinex with a full glass of water, three times per day. If cervical mucus does not become thinner, increase dosage to maximum allowed on the label. Take during the 5 days before ovulation, and the day of ovulation.
1047147 tn?1328909754 Robitussin is the most common brand name, at least in the U.S., that carries a guaifenesin-only expectorant, but there are other brands and generics available. As long as the only active ingredient is guaifenesin, you can use any variety you find. For those with diabetes or otherwise concerned about sugar intake, there is the brand Diabetic Tussin available. What is the recommended dose of guaifenesin?
Avatar f tn I really bought it this time!). So how much am I supposed to take? My husband had to buy the Mucinex for Kids because it was the only one that met the 100mg guaifenesin requirement (the others had other ingredients and higher mg). Also, has anyone here taken either of these meds to increase CM and did it work for you? If all else fails I'll have the Pre-Seed but I am eager to know everyone elses' experiences!!!
1240856 tn?1333443954 I take the mucinex orally once in morning and once at night. The mucinex D is the decongestiant kind and it is for drying up the mucus where just plain mucinex has the same ingredient as robutissin and it is an expectorant. It has just the Guaifenesin as the only ingredient.
1190279 tn?1324939857 and if so how do take in how much and how many days,when to start it ;) THANKS..........
453798 tn?1262637021 I ended up taking Mucinex DM.. its like 1200mg of Guaifenesin in each tablet. It did help, but not as much as when I was not on Clomid. Having more is awesome! From what I understand.. the more the better!
Avatar f tn I had made dairy products a BIG part of my menu for years. I hadn't had much luck in the past with giving up dairy because I love milk, and soymilk and almond milk just didn't do it for me...they felt 'oily' in my mouth. But I've just found Rice Milk, and I'm delighted to say that for me, it's a wonderful milk substitute. Rice Milk has a lovely, light flavor that actually reminds me a bit of the flavor of 100% whole milk, without feeling thick and oily.
12773 tn?1328916786 cough syrups, but a little lower dose. Mucinex brand is expensive, but you can find store brand cough syrups with guaifenesin much cheaper. My doc basically said "if it helps you, use it". My puffs of albuterol do much more for me. G.
Avatar f tn It is possible that men with thick semen may benefit from guaifenesin in the same manner it helps with cervical mucus in women. The suggested doses on the newsgroups and fertility boards range from two teaspoons twice per day to four teaspoons four times per day.
Avatar f tn My 2nd ENT said to me - he sat me down and said : "I'm going to give you the keys to the kingdom: Control the mucus. Mucus is caustic and it creates inflammation if it lingers in your system". And he prescribed guaifenesin - he also told me "guaifenesin fights inflammation by adding water to mucus".
Avatar f tn you are welcome. something else you need is guaifenesin.You want your mucus moist & thin so it can run down the throat or out the nose and not be thick. you want THIN MUCUS AT ALL TIMES. I take guaifenesin every single day and I drink LOTS of water. I have taken it daily since 1995. I used to take it twice a day and now I take it once a day - 2 400 mg capsules once a day. guaifenesin has no side effects and is even safe for children.
Avatar m tn u think u r probably just getting a cold or the flu
162948 tn?1205256292 hi everyone i just got the iud put in about 3week ago and my period been on for 2 weeks you know how long it will be on? if i go get it taken out will my period do right off?
Avatar f tn I have read a little bit about mucinex and robitussen, etc. HOW SOON are you supposed to start taking those? How much? How long? It helps with EWCM, right? I'd love some more information about it from you wonderful experienced ladies. Anything else I can try? (Even if it's not scientifically "proven"...I'll try anything!) I already practically stand on my head after BD. Hey, it worked when I got pregnant with my daughter so I'm stickin' with it!
Avatar n tn I read in the post above that Guaifenesin can make this happen. Guaifenesin is found in many medications similar to Mucinex that thins the mucus in your bronchial tubes. I started taking Mucinex DM because of chest congestion about 4 days ago... which is exactly when this sensation started happening. Its actually happening right now as I type this. Beneath my right shoulder blade, about 2 inches from my spine, this feeling occurs.
Avatar f tn But the fact is that this expectorant is used to loosen and thin mucus of a different kind too, called cervical mucus, in women. Robitussin is only a specific brand and any expectorant that contains guaifenesin as the only active ingredient can be used in its place. Generic versions are most likely available as well. Be sure to carefully inspect the ingredients list to make sure the ONLY active ingredient as guaifenesin. Any other ingredients can diminish the effect you are looking for.
927769 tn?1275936202 Welcome ladies!!! I hope there's tons of SSBD for all of you!! I just lost mine at 5 weeks....I don't see my doctor until tomorrow but I know that it was a miscarriage. I'm just hoping that we are the lucky ones that will get pregnant right away and it carry through to be healthy! It was only Friday when this happened and it was only that one day that was really tough with lots of bleeding. After that there hasn't been much...maybe a cramp here and a backpain there but Friday was brutal.

149010 tn?1197911001 How did your appt go?
3166043 tn?1514263618 Also, if your doc doesn't already have you on it (probably does), the main ingredient in Mucinex (Guaifenesin) is a WONDERFUL drug for bronchitis and pneumonia. It's an expectorant and works to thin out the secretions, making them easier to expectorate (aka "hack up"..ha). Guaifenesin is available by Rx, usually called Humibid, and it really is a necessity for these kinds of illnesses, plus it is VERY safe and easy to tolerate.
221122 tn?1323014865 I have taken liquid NyQuil at night in the past because I can sip small doses. However, I usually wake up with a hangover and I don't like that much, either. I may be in trouble in a few years when I need some of these meds to live.....
922048 tn?1387946184 I purchased some chlorophyll which is supposed to be good for internal cleansing, as is guaifenesin (Mucinex). I am also trying to drink LOADS of water! It is not pleasant dealing with this issue. Changing one's diet is not the most fun thing either. But this is a GIGANTIC problem, ladies! Much, much larger than mainstream medicine wants to admit. And I have to say, I have no idea why not! I honestly think that around 75% of the women on this site have this problem and don't know it.
