Mucinex is an expectorant which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm) to help relieve chest congestion. It thins bronchial secretions to rid the bronchial passageways of bothersome mucus and makes coughs more productive.
Mucinex comes in a unique bi-layer tablet which contains an Immediate-Release layer which gets to work fast and the Extended-Release layer which provides symptomatic relief for up to 12 hours - all day or all night.
