thought my husband was crazy
I took mucinex, and my left eyes nearly swollen and closed . My eye is so swollen, it looks like pink eye. O don' t want to go to the doctor because my funds are low to make a co payment, but I'll never ever take muciex again as long as I live. I'm trying a home remedy . I looked on you tube, and some suggestions were Apple cider vinegar. I know that it's weird, and may cause a little burning. This is why I'm hesitant over using Ned's due to side effects. I hope that my response will help you.
