Chest Congestion - Guaifenesin - Expectorant
Yes, the drug industry is popping, prescription drugs are flying all over the place along with the customer-friendly, over-the-counter remedies.
Well, hopefully most of y'all dodge the sickness that is typically spread during this time of year, but if you do get sick, if it involves chest congestion, you may want to check this out.
It is called "Guaifenesin" and is the ingredient you need to be looking for, when searching for an effective expectorant that helps chest congestion by thinning and loosening mucus (phlegm). It thins the bronchial secretions to rid the bronchial passageways of the bothersome, aggravating funky phlegm as this, in turn, helps to make your coughs more productive.
The side-effects are basically non-existent but, as with most drugs, there is still a possibility of incurring some.
The main reason for this post, is that many people who try to avoid going to the Doctor and paying a high price for prescription pills (can't blame ya there), often fail to realize what to look for, when dealing with congested lungs. All illnesses suck, but having mucus stored in your lungs is always at risk for further exasperation. Guaifenesin is one of the best drugs I have ever took, for breaking up that mess and freeing yourself of chest congestion.
If you're at a local pharmacy or market, ask about it, and try to get a product that solely has that ingredient alone - without all that other added crap and/or drugs that don't relate to a chronic cough with lung congestion, etc. Taking 400 mg. every 4 hours, as needed, should help with your bronchial passageways, as this is an excellent expectorant - especially for an over-the-counter drug.
