Perrigo Starts Shipment of Generic Mucinex

Perrigo announced that it has begun shipments of Guaifenesin Extended-Release Tablets, the generic version of Reckitt Benckiser's Mucinex extended-release tablets.

Mucinex is an expectorant indicated to relieve chest congestion and make coughs more productive. Guaifenesin is thought to act as an expectorant by increasing the volume and reducing the viscosity of secretions in the trachea and bronchi. Thus, it may increase the efficiency of the cough reflex and facilitate removal of the secretions.

Guaifenesin Extended-Release Tablets are available in a 600mg strength tablet.
