Default Does mucinex make you sleepy?

I feel like I'm in la-la land! I've been taking it for several days off and on, but decided I needed to stick with it to clear all the gunk out, after I nearly choked to death last night. Now I can't do anything. Feel like a zombie.

I think it does the same thing to me. I was sick last week and took Mucinex for a few days. I thought the fatigue and drowsiness was due to being sick. I stopped taking the Mucinex and I seemed to perk up a bit. I never bothered to look at the box to see if drowsiness is noted as a possible side effect.

I just read the package insert - although, it is suppose to be a non-drowsy product, it can cause drowsiness in some people.

It never made me sleepy though.

It certainly can, especially when you accidentally take too many.

No not at all. Im totally fine with it. But DayQuil and Tylenol Cold make me an idiot.

I was sick off and on this winter with something that made me really super tired but not wonky in the head. Mucinex was a godsend. I had so much gunk!

Mucus makes me gag ... and when I gag I sometimes barf. Not the best situation.

That's a product which I refuse to buy, based on the fact that they shove the "m" word
down our throats. That's just not a word which I want to hear, sixty times a day, in
my living room. That, and the new non-smoking ads, make me reach for the remote,
even faster than hearing Sandra what's-her-name.

(And, thank you, Sal. Now the word is in print, right here)

CBL ... The word that shall not be named can really wreck you and should you ever have an issue with this bodily fluid I highly recommend the product that we are discussing.

Heh heh

Thank you, Sal, for your restraint. I'd take your advice, just because it's you...except that I refuse to swallow any of those liquids. Now, possibly, if it were in pill form, and
the name had been covered over, with a Hershey's wrapper, I might...might...consider it.

The drug that we are discussing comes in pill form (that's what i take). Should you find yourself in distress call and I'll bake them into cupcakes for you !

I am praying to God that there isn't some sort of weird side effect found later on as I have been LIVING off the stuff lately! At times it seems to make me sleepy, but I wonder if that isn't this horrible virus. Other times I'm certain it keeps me awake. So who knows, the jury is still out.

I've been taking it for about a week now, and it has really helped.
