Mucinex Se Powers Through Chest Congestion
When you’re sick, excess mucus may be bothering you and causing chest congestion. Mucinex extended-release tablets break up the mucus that causes chest congestion, providing you with fast-acting and long-lasting relief.
Chest congestion is what happens when the mucus membranes (mucosa) that line your airways jump into overdrive. When you breathe in an irritant (like dust, bacteria or a virus), mucosa cells are attacked causing inflammation and extra mucus in your airways. This extra mucus is one of the ways your body tries to remove an irritant.
» Only Mucinex has a unique bi-layer tablet. One layer for immediate release, the other layer for extended release.
» Mucinex SE powers through chest congestion for 12 hours so you can say goodbye to retaking medicine every 4 hours.
» Don’t drag yourself out of bed when you are sick.
Guaifenesin (1200 mg) 1 Tablet Every 12 Hours
