  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for fibromyalgia)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: The Mucinex was not hard to take. It comes in 12 hour extended release tablets. I would take them twice per day. It helped especially when my pain meds were not working or for the night when my meds would wear off. It helped keep my pain down so that I could sleep. I started Savella and that seems to be helping a lot. The Mucinex is expensive and I could not longer afford paying for it. Since the Savella is helping so much, I was able to stop the Mucinex.
Cost: $50-99 monthly
