Were you looking for information on Guaifenesin? Guaifensin is a common misspelling of guaifenesin.
Guaifenesin, which is found in products like Mucinex® and Robitussin®, is designed to help thin bronchial secretions so that they are easier to cough up, thus relieving chest congestion. The medication has also been used in an off-label fashion to treat fibromyalgia and to help a woman become pregnant. It comes in both tablet and syrup forms, and is generally taken every 4 to 12 hours, but dosing can vary.
Before taking this drug, you may want to consult with a pharmacist or healthcare provider about its appropriateness for your situation. For example, people who should avoid alcohol may need to avoid combination products that contain guaifenesin, which could also contain alcohol. In addition, people with certain breathing problems, such as asthma or emphysema, may need to use a different medication instead.
