Questions about Mucinex Sinus-Max

Recommended Posts

Averaoxi

So I'm considering taking Mucinex Sinus-Max to see if that might help with loosening possible congestion causing my breathing problems, and I wonder if anyone's ran into any real issues with using the over the counter brand, since it does contain "Acetaminophen" which I've read supposedly can give false readings, and "Phenylephrine" which can apparently raise blood sugar.

I've taken Acetaminophen-which is the same as tylonol a few times and my readings have remained constant. "Phenylephrine" is a decongestant. Mucinex is mainly used for a cough with mucus and congestion mainly from a cold or flu.

 

If you have mainly a sinus problems it may be caused by allergies and you might be better off with an allergy pill. If this is a recent problem eliminating new products that you have begun to use may help. I use a Rexall brand equal to Reactin when my allergies bother me. A saline spray  like "Hydro-sense" will help reduce the swelling of the sinuses and make breathing easier.A Saline spray is salt water in certain proportions. Salt has properties that reduce swelling. I use both when my nose becomes blocked because of swelling sinuses caused by my allergy to dust, mold and certain scents
