Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello my name is***** but you can call me Dr. H, and I am a licensed veterinarian. I understand that your pet Beasley may have ingested a Mucinex tablet and is currently on Prozac as prescribed by your vet.
The restlessness that you describe indicate a possible Serotonin syndrome reaction from the Mucinex. This is often caused by the Dextromorphan ingredient in the medication.
There are many variants to this medication. Can you please list the ingredients there or take a picture of the bottle to send to me. I need the mg dosage of the Dextromorphan as well.

Poor guy. Yellow vomit is bile. This comes from the stomach.
I mean small intestines.
These two drugs given together (Prozac and Mucinex) can cause some increased anticholinergic effects of the Prozac, which include blurred vision, dry mouth, and increased core body temperature.
I assume you are still gathering information about the mg dosage your pet received.
A safe dosage for of 1-2mg/kg can be given to dogs. At 5.5mg/kg dosage we can expect to see some agitation and possible tremors or seizure activity. The treatment for this is a medication called Cyproheptadine or Diazepam, both can be prescribed by a licensed vet.
Are you still there?
I tried to just look up the Mucinex D online to gather its active ingredients since I have not heard from you. I was able to gather that this form contains Guaifenesin and Pseudoephedrine, with no Dextromorphan. Is that correct?
