May have spelled it wrong lol.  I was wondering if this can be used for allergy/asthma purposes?
Dx with Crohn's 1987, symptoms as early as 1984. Ovarian cysts dx 1994, migraines dx 1996, allergies (including food allergies) , oral allergy syndrome (sligtly different than true food allergies), Astham dx 1984, Gall Bladder removed 1999, Inguenal hernia Sx 1987
 
Entocort 9mg, Pentasa 2.5 g, Remicade every 8 weeks, miralax, metamucil capsules, Elavil 100 mg, Zanaflex 4 mg, asmanex, singulair, foltix, probiotics
As needed: Albuterol inhaler, relpax, nebulizer (albuterol ), have an Epi-pen but hope I never have to use one.

I was only recently diagnosed with cough variant asthma, but I've been told to take Mucinex by my dr. it helps thin mucus so you can get it out. I take it just about every day. Especially when I'm having a flare. But I don't take the DM version as that has a cough suppressant, which isn't a good thing to suppress with asthma.

When I saw the doctor he said my cough was coarse and had me use their nebulizer. After the treatment he listened and said I sounded better (even though I was styill coughing quite a bit). He said it seemed to just be my asthma so I reasked him if I had a cold or not even tho I had no sore throat and no sinus issues since I am immunosupressed and around many people that have the cold that is going around. He said well it is nothing bacterial. I am trying to understand that comment so do I have a virus? The treatment he told me was increase fluids, get rest, use mucinex DM and either my inhaler or nebulizer every 4-6 hours. If I am not sick why the mucinex DM and not another product by them?

I don't really know much about mucinex DM Saw some commercials on tv about it. You can safely take Albuterol up to 4 times a day safely. I would talk to your doctor again if you don't improve in a few days. You may need to go on a short  course of Prednisone. BRANDI.
 
Asthma
Chronic Sinusitis

If you seem to have mucous, use a vaporizer at night to add additional moisture in the air which will in turn add moisture to the mucous & you will be better able to cough it up. If you seem to have a problem w/mucous throughout the yr, ask MD about Rxing one of 2 devices used to breakup mucous. The devices are made from plastic, sends vibrations into your lungs which breaks the mucous up and allows you to expell the trapped secretions.

Good luck!
