Robitussin vs. Mucinex?

How does one decide which to use? What's the difference?

I decided to buy Mucinex because I read that robitussin has other things in it, but Mucinex only has Guaifenesin in it. The Guaifenesin is what we wantChat Icon

That is what I thought too. So i just took Mucinex. I only tried it one month and it did not help me at all.

The plain Robitussin is exactly the same as the Mucinex. I have taken both and gotten pregnant on both. Chat Icon I didn't see any "obvious" results but what it really does is thin your mucus membranes on the inside to make a more sperm-friendly environment by your cervix. Either one is fine as long as you use just plain Robitussin.

Thanks! I was hoping someone would say that since Robitussin is much cheaper Chat Icon

Make sure you buy the one that says "expectorant." The other one will dry your body out Chat Icon

Re: Robitussin vs. Mucinex?

i just re-read TCOYF today: PLAIN robitussin is guifenesin only, which is the same as mucinex. the difference is mucinex is an extended release pill, and robitussin has to be taken 3 or 4 times a day.

Re: Robitussin vs. Mucinex?

I've used both (during different months of course) and I didn't notice much of a difference. I'm going to skip it altoghether this month bc I usually get EWCM without the meds. Sorry I can't be of more help.

I'll use Mucinex because we already have some in the house.

How far in advance do we need to start using either???


ETA: Quick question... what kind of Mucinex should we be taking? There are a few different kinds out there....

If you are going to take anything make sure it ONLY has Guafinesin in it - or is labeled "expectorant." If it says "suppressant" that will dry your CM up.

I took it a few days before O and continued to take it until after I was sure that I had O'd.
