Mucinex D has guaifenesin and pseudoephedrine.

Guaifenesin is an expectorant. It helps loosen congestion in your chest and throat, making it easier to cough out through your mouth.

Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant that shrinks blood vessels in the nasal passages. Dilated blood vessels can cause nasal congestion (stuffy nose).

Mucinex DM contains guaifenesin and dextromethorphan.

Dextromethorphan is a cough suppressant. It affects the signals in the brain that trigger cough reflex.

They are good but effect an enlarged PROSTATE. I'm looking for an Oral drug that doesn't enlarge the prostate.
