Guaifenesin. In generic or brand name Mucinex. Really cheap and has been around forever. Take one 600mg tablet every 4-6 hours. Drink lots of fluid with this as it works using the water in your body to thin secretions in the lungs and sinuses. My ENT put me on this for severe sinus headaches. Essentially it works in the lungs as an expectorant. Helping you cough all the gunk up. Remember the fluids, the more you drink the better it works. Sinus drainage can cause chest problems such as bronchitis. Use Zyrtec as a sinus allergy preventative. Get the generic, its cheaper.Health Question & Answer

You could do a steady dose of mucinex, sudafed and tylenol to attempt to drain it, but he really needs antibiotics to stop the infection from turning into pneumonia. Have him go to a Walk-In clinic and see if the doctor has samples of medication he can give him since he does not have insurance.Health Question & Answer
