Suggest ways to mange the side effects of Mucinex
The effects of Mucinex D will last for about half a day.
Thank you for your query.
1. It's unfair to blame the Mucinex DM tablet for all the dryness. While it is true that there is a side effect of dryness with this medication, it also appears that you are dehydrated by the fever and flu.
2. As far as the dose of Mucinex DM is concerned, the side effects should disappear in about 12 hours.
3. Hence any persisting symptoms beyond another 6 hours will also be due to the flu. In addition take fresh cream and honey based mixtures to soothe the throat, reduce irritation and cough. You may add a little crushed ginger and black pepper to taste.
I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any further questions, I will be available to answer them.
