Hello, welcome to the site! My name isXXXXX and I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek
What color is the mucus?
Do you have any chest pain or shortness of breath?
the mucus is clear
and I do have some chest pain which started after I've been coughing for a while
Okay, any chills?
Okay, this may still be irritation in your bronchi, I don't think it is an infection at this time
You said mucinex makes you dizzy?
Yes, I only took one and fell asleep, I woke up feeling really dizzy.
I'm not sure if that's normal?
Was it mucinex D or mucinex?
Okay, do you have nasal congestion?
Okay, then you would be better off taking mucinex instead of mucinex D
It will not likely cause dizziness
So the coughing should be gone in a couple days?
it doesn't seem like it's getting better at all and at night I feel horrible.
Yes , it should subside within a few days
Ok. So I shouldn't start taking anything else I assume?
I don't think you need to take anything else at this time
Ok then. Thank you so much.
You're quite welcome
