I took 2 mucinex 1200 mg each totally by mistake - I thought

This answer was rated:

I took 2 mucinex 1200 mg each totally by mistake - I thought they were Tylenol sinus tablets. After few hours noticed my sinus headache still there and looked at the pack and couldn't believe I did that. Never taken Mucinex before - it was my son's. I feel fine, but wondering if I should be concerned. Also my sinus headache is bad - can I take Tylenol sinus with Mucnex or should I wait.
JA: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: Very infrequent associated w/ allergies. Last time was probably 4 weeks ago.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No.

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

An adult can take up to 2.4 gm of mucinex in a day. But not more than this. So, without any symptoms you should not be concerned about this. You have not take a toxic dose but a dose that can be taken rarely by a few patients when required.

You can take only Tylenol for the headache, and should avoid Tylenol sinus if it contains guaifenesin.

Take care.
