Right now I have a cough which may be caused by acid reflux. I also have complained to my Dr. about the dry mouth I experience at night. I just have to put my head on the pillow and my mouth is dry. In the daytime I have plenty of saliva. I take medications for high blood pressure, cholesterol. I think my Dr. at one time said to take Mucinex for dry mouth.
I hope you are well
DRUG CLASS AND MECHANISM: Guaifenesin is an expectorant, that is, a medication that promotes elimination of mucus from the lungs. The expectorant effects of guaifenesin promote elimination of mucous by thinning the mucous and lubricating the irritated respiratory tract. Guaifenesin is an ingredient in many over-the-counter cough and cold products. Guaifenesin was first approved by the FDA in 1952.
