About Mucinex

People who have chest and nasal congestion due to excess mucus in their lungs often turn to FDA approved Mucinex for relief. It contains guaifenesin, an expectorant that suppresses coughing, thins and loosens mucus without causing drowsiness and makes coughing more productive when it does occur.

Adams Respiratory Therapeutics of Chester, New Jersey, developed, marketed and sold both prescription and non-prescription remedies to treat respiratory complaints and ailments. Their Mucinex(R) DM was created to bring relief to people suffering from the effects of excess mucus in their lungs and was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in May of 2004, only ten months after their application. The extended release combination formula with guaifenesin and dextromethorphan as its primary ingredients was the first of its kind to receive FDA approval. Previously, a prescription was needed to purchase these products, but their cough suppressant and expectorant became available in retail pharmacies throughout the United States in September of 2004 and did not require a prescription. In July of 2002, the FDA approved Adams’ earlier extended release product that contains guaifenesin, Mucinex(R), and because of that approval, all other products with extended release containing guaifenesin were ordered off the market by December of 2003.

Adams was a private company and needed additional funding to develop the Mucinex formula, submit it to the FDA and market it, so Reckitt Benckiser Group plc obtained Adams Respiratory Therapeutics for over two billion dollars in 2008. Their headquarters are near London, UK, in Slough.

Mucinex is the only 12-hour expectorant containing guaifenesin with FDA approval in the USA. Several dosage forms of Mucinex are available for over-the-counter purchase. Mucinex DM joins guaifenesin’s long-acting qualities with dextromethorphan’s cough suppressant properties, Mucinex D combines the decongestant pseudoephedrine with the long-acting expectorant, and Maximum Strength Mucinex gives 1200 mg of guaifenesin for greater effectiveness.

Mucinex Full Force Nasal Spray and Mucinex Moisture Smart Nasal Spray with topical nasal decongestants are recent additions to the Mucinex line of products. Mucinex for Children is now available in either liquid or Mini-Melt formulas, and Mucinex Cough Mini-Melts are another popular cough remedy.
