Mucinex & Enlarged Prostate
Mucinex is a drug used to relieve the cough.
QUESTION: How does Mucinex affect an enlarged prostate?
: Hi there,
At first, I want to remind you that Mucinex is a drug used to relieve the cough. However, as any other drugs, Mucinex has side effects and precautions, to which you have to pay attention.
Any ways, the producer of Mucinex informs that every single patient with Benign Prostate Hyperplasia (BPH), who wants to use Mucinex, because of common cold or something else, has to speak with his health-care provider first.
This is quite important, because several patients, with BPH, who were using Mucinex, reported that the urination became even more difficult during the treatment with Mucinex. However, some other patients with the same condition, who were using Mucinex, haven’t mentioned something like this.
My advice for you is to reconsider using another drug, which can help you with the cough, in purpose to avoid possible complication, caused by Mucinex.
The best option for you is to speak with your physician about other drugs are available in your country. Besides this, if you tell me where you live, I can tell you which drugs you can use for your cough, without being worried for aggravation of the BPH symptoms.
Hope it helped! Dr.Alba
