I am honored that again I can talk up my caretaker (lovely young bride). She seen the misery I was in with he phlegm/mucus and she has been all over net and talking to anyone she could. She has me on Mucinex w/expectorant alternating with Children s Allergy w/anthihistamine. She had to ask the pharmacist the conversion ratio. Then taking my pain meds and I now have some relief. It isn't completely gone, but I do not feel the need to beat my head on the wall. I know this will not work for everyone, but if you are having mucus/phlegm issues I would give it a try.
Also I would like to say many thanks to all of your suggestions and moral support and prayers. I only hope I can help at least.. at least one person with something, because I have been helped on here more than I could say.

    Me too
    Congratulations. I discovered the Musinex trick myself and it saved me from losing my mind, not to mention choking to death in the middle of the night because I suddenly couldn't couldn't breath. Just so you know, the Robitussin and store brand DX formulas work equally as well at 1/2 and 1/3 the price.
