Review: Children's Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold

When I was asked to review Children's Mucinex, I immediately said yes.  I wasn't even aware that there was a children's formula but know that Mucinex has really worked wonders on myself when I have been stuffed up.  And knowing how kids will come by colds at some point, I figured this might be the thing to help break up their congestion and help them breathe easier.

Sure enough, not only did my kids get colds, one ended up with the flu.  Yep, coughing, stuffy nose and congestion.  I broke out the Children's Mucinex Multi-Symptom Cold formula.  The kids took it with no problems.  Sometimes they complain that medicines taste bad--they never would have survived when I was a child and attempts at flavoring meds were feeble, at best--and that is when you were even lucky to get a flavored one.  But like I said, no complaints on taste.

The results were very good.  Although they weren't miraculously well, they definitely had a reduction in symptoms and were breathing easier and coughing less.  This allowed them more restful sleep which led to overall feeling better.

That being said, I personally would prefer the Mucinex Chest Congestion product that contains just Guaifenesin to break up congestion.  The reason is that I don't like the drug Dextromethorphan that is in most cough syrups as I personally have side effects from it.  However, I didn't notice any side effects in my children, but still would prefer to stick with honey to treat their coughs.  NOTE: THIS MEDICATION IS NOT INTENDED FOR CHILDREN UNDER 4 YEARS OF AGE!

Such great timing! I bought Mucinex for my daughter and myself because we have a cough that we just can't get rid off. It was recommended by the pharmacist and some of our friends. I must say it has made a difference unlike other drugs.
