Mucinex DM Powers Through Cough & Chest Congestion
Not all coughs are the same. Sometimes you can have a wet cough caused by mucus. Other times, you have an irritating dry cough. Some days it’s both. Whichever you’re dealing with, relief has arrived with Mucinex DM.
When you’re healthy, the cilia in your airways move mucus toward your throat to either be coughed up or swallowed. But with a respiratory tract infection (like the common cold), mucus can build up in your airways and lungs, so your body has to cough to get rid of it.
Chest congestion is what happens when the mucus membranes (mucosa) that line your airways jump into overdrive. When you breathe in an irritant (like dust, bacteria or a virus), mucosa cells are attacked causing inflammation and extra mucus in your airways. This extra mucus is one of the ways your body tries to remove an irritant.
Only Mucinex has a unique bi-layer tablet. One layer for immediate release, the other layer for extended release.
Mucinex DM powers through chest congestion for 12 hours so you can say goodbye to retaking medicine every 4 hours.
Don’t drag yourself out of bed when you are sick. Rest up and have Mucinex come to you with 1 hour delivery through Prime Now.
