Guaifenex is an expectorant. Guaifenex is used to treat the symptoms of the common cold and of infections of your sinuses, your lungs, and your throat. It works by making phlegm in the breathing tubes more liquid. This medication should not be used if you have certain medical conditions. It is used to break up congestion and mucous to ease breathing. Guaifenesin thins mucous, increases lubrication of the respiratory tract (lungs, nose, and throat), and increases the removal of mucous. Guaifenex passes into breast milk and may harm a nursing infant. Do not take this medication without first talking to your doctor if you are breast-feeding a baby. Caution is advised when using this drug in the elderly because they may be more sensitive to its effects, especially dizziness and lightheadedness.
