I am sensitive to drugs, especially the ones that say "may cause drowsiness". However, I take those kind but have to be careful when and where I take them. Today I was home (thank goodness) and took the MucinexDM, within an hour I was asleep and slept for hours. I have not coughed in all that time so it works great! A warning on the box would be helpful. I would hate to think what would have happened if I had taken it and drove off. I understand that I am more sensitive than most people but I would think that statement on the box would protect you as well.

All companies are trying to make sure that all warnings are on the box. For their sake of being sued and for your sake too. Did you know when you get novacaine for a filling, that if you hit someone or just get pulled over, you can be arrested for driving while under the influence. Now that will make you think twice. We all have to be responsible for our bodies and what we put into it.
If there is any chance you will or think it will make you drowsy, do not drive. Stay at home and you will get better quicker.
