In my opinion Muscinex works just as well.
Best wishes to you.

Mucinex does NOT work anything like Benzonatate /Tessalon! You need to understand WHAT is making you cough before deciding what to take.

TESSALON actually numbs the lining of your throat & lungs, which greatly reduces body's reflex to cough. Its great for very frequent dry hacking cough...

Mucinex is also great medicine bUT only loosening secretions, which make's it easier to cough thick phlegm up. It's great if you are coughing due to need to get lots of thick secretions out of your chest.
