Guaifenesin is a nonprescription medicine approved for the treatment of chest congestion. It works by thinning mucus, which makes coughs more productive. The medication is found in products like Mucinex® and Robitussin®. It is available in both syrup and tablet forms, with the tablets available in immediate-release and extended-release varieties.
 
In general, dosing guidelines recommend that guaifenesin be taken every 4 to 12 hours, but this will depend on certain factors, such as the specific product, a person's age and possibly weight, and the condition being treated. It is best to follow the recommendations for your exact product. However, if you have any questions or concerns, contact your pharmacist or healthcare provider for advice.
