How Mucinex Expectorant works

Mucinex Expectorant is a combination of two medicines: Ambroxol and guaifenesin which relieve cough with mucus. Ambroxol is a mucolytic which thins and loosens mucus (phlegm), making it easier to cough out. Guaifenesin is an expectorant which works by decreasing the stickiness of mucus (phlegm) and helps in their removal from the airways.
