Detailed answer....
Hello,
Thanks for the query.
I have  read your query and understand your problem.
I can understand the problem many people face on using flu medicines.
The best for you  would be to carry on with your MUCINEX and in addition start taking steam inhalation 2-3 times a day.
Avoid cold drinks and drink hot liquids.
You may add an anti allergic Benadryl capsule in the night which will not cause any botheration in day time.
For bodyache or fever you can take Tylenol.
You should be all right in next 4-5 days.
I hope it helps however you may revert to me for any further query.
Best of luck
Thanks

Hello,
Yes you can carry on with MUCINEX for next week also.
You may take ACC also but do take steam inhalation which would be very useful for you.
