QUESTION & ANSWER
Can I take Mucinex and benzonatate at the same time?
Yes. Doctors may combine Mucinex and benzonatate because they treat coughs in different ways. Mucinex is a brand name for guaifenesin, which is an expectorant. It thins mucus, making it easier to cough up. Benzonatate is an antitussive that suppresses or quiets a cough. Brand names include Tessalon.
