Normally, I am not a big drug person. I tend to get more side effects than benefit from most drugs, so I generally go the herbal route.
Also, I just seriously have issues with using a product touted by this guy:
But Jim and Megan were sick last week with sinus infections. They both have noses that tend toward that and I was muchly counting my blessings that my nose is usually infection free. However, I took pity on them and shelled out the $35 for a box of Mucinex. Actually, Megan bought it using my debit card. If I'd been at the store I would have thought twice about that price! But whatever. I was just glad I wasn't sick.
Pride goeth before the fall.
Yesterday I had to leave work early because I. Was. So. Sick.
I came home, took some Mucinex that Jim and Megan had raved over, and went to bed. When I woke up, I felt better. I still have a cold BUT the sinus pressure is 99% gone. I can breathe. And I can work. Yippee!!!
So, if you're standing in the store wondering if you should shell out the big bucks for this stuff, the answer is YES! It's dang expensive but worth every penny.
