Question: can i take a sleeping pill eszopicione with XXXXXXX strength mucinex
Answered by Dr. Vaishalee Punj 56 minutes later
Brief Answer:
It may cause sedation

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to Ask A Doctor service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
XXXXXXX strength Mucinex has guaiphenesin and Dextromethophan. When eszopiclone is combined with dextromethorphan, it can worsen the sedation, and other side effects caused by dextromethorphan. It can be combined with special precautions for the side effects.

Hope it helps. Let me know if Ii can assist you further.
