Were you looking for information on Guaifenesin? Guaifenisen is a common misspelling of guaifenesin.
Guaifenesin, a common ingredient in cold and cough products, is used to help relieve chest congestion. It works by thinning phlegm and other bronchial secretions so that they are easier to cough up. This medication should not be used for dry, hacking coughs. In addition, if the cough persists for more than seven days or goes away and comes back, stop taking guaifenesin and contact your healthcare provider.
Although most people have no problems with the medicine, guaifenesin is not right for everyone, and some people may be more prone to experiencing side effects than others. Adverse reactions can include nausea, dizziness, headaches, and, in rare cases, kidney stones. If you experience any side effects while taking this drug, or if something is "just not right," you should also contact your healthcare provider.
