I have had a bad chest cold for many days.  I took some Mucinex to help break up the congestion.  Now I feel sort of like I did when Flagyl failed me.  I have tingling, nausea, dizzines even just tilting my head and that all over creepy feeling.  I can't tell if it is the cold taking over or the Mucinex.  I looked up the side effects, but none were really listed as common.
Anyone else that has had the flagyl issue tried Mucinex?  Similar results??

I have not had this but have you talked to your doctor maybe they can give you some tamiflu to help with this bug you have.

I have taken Mucinex a bunch of times and not had a problem. Just a thought, but have you looked at everything you are taking for your cold to see if there might be a connection. Maybe an interaction or an overdose of the same ingredient? I know I try to take singe ingredient products when I am sick, but it doesn't always work that way and sometimes products will have the same ingredients or similar ones without me realizing.

Just don't drink any grapefruit juice while taking Mucinex.

Maybe you have an ear infection? I know in the past when I've had an ear infection, I've had dizziness and equilibrium issues.
