For Cough: “Two-bottle package of Mucinex Fast-Max and Nightshift. Over $20 but it would have been worth it if it worked. Started with Nightshift and the next day I took the Fast-Max. Not one bit of improvement in any of my symptoms. Waste of money.”

For Cough: “I take an MAOI so I can't use decongestants. I take Mucinex when I start getting a cold or flu. It relieves my cough and congestion, keeps my lungs clear. Yes, it gives me a runny nose but that's what it's supposed to do, thin the mucous so you can get rid of it. My coughs are fewer and those I have are productive. Drinking a lot of water of other liquid is essential. I suspect some of the negative reviews are from folks who didn't drink enough. Personally I would recommend giving it a try, with lots of fluids.”

For Cough: “Have COPD and am taking this for mucus and cough every 4 hours. Can't swallow pill so taking liquid. The taste is so strong it sometimes makes me cough forever. Can a small amount of water be added to dose?”
