Perrigo and Allergan announced the launch of Guaifenesin Extended-Release Tablets, the generic version of Reckitt Benckiser‘s Mucinex Maximum Strength .

Mucinex Maximum Strength is indicated to relieve chest congestion and to break up mucus, making coughs more productive. Guaifenesin is an expectorant that promotes or facilitates the removal of secretions from the respiratory tract. By increasing sputum volume and making sputum less viscous, guaifenesin facilitates expectoration of retained secretions.
