Mucinex Disorientation Causes and Reviews


Sepsis is a serious illness. It happens when your body has an overwhelming immune response to a bacterial infection. The chemicals released into the blood to fight the infection trigger widespread inflammation. This leads to blood clots and leaky blood vessels. They cause poor blood flow, which deprives your body's organs of nutrients and oxygen. In severe cases, one or more organs fail. In the worst cases, blood pressure drops and the heart weakens, leading to septic shock.

Anyone can get sepsis, but the risk is higher in

  • People with weakened immune systems
  • Infants and children
  • The elderly
  • People with chronic illnesses, such as diabetes, AIDS, cancer, and kidney or liver disease
  • People suffering from a severe burn or physical trauma

Common symptoms of sepsis are fever, chills, rapid breathing and heart rate, rash, confusion, and Disorientation. Doctors diagnose sepsis using a blood test to see if the number of white blood cells is abnormal. They also do lab tests that check for signs of infection.

People with sepsis are usually treated in hospital intensive care units. Doctors try to treat the infection, sustain the vital organs, and prevent a drop in blood pressure. Many patients receive oxygen and intravenous (IV) fluids. Other types of treatment, such as respirators or kidney dialysis, may be necessary. Sometimes, surgery is needed to clear up an infection.

Mucinex Disorientation Reviews

Mon, 11 Oct 2010
I was treated for acute sinusitis today. Doctor prescribed a Z-pack antibiotic (which usually does the trick for me), and he also suggested Mucinex. Well, the drug store advised me to use the extra strength dose (1200 mg) . It was the regular chest congestion, no for sinuse congestion. That seemed a bit confusing to me but I assumed the pharmacist knew what she was doing. So, I took one table at around 5:30 pm today. It is an extended release tablet, so now, about 3 hours later, I woke up from a very brief nap, which I hadn't planned on taking. I just konked out I guess, and woke up to dizziness, some tingling in my face and finger tips, and just plain Disorientation. I would definitely not be wanting to drive right about now, or do anything that required alot of focused thought. It is difficult for me to even type this----I told my 20 year old son. Do not take that Mucinex that I just put in the medicine cabinet. It might work on the chest congestion, but it makes you feel so strange that you likely won't want to take it again. I know that I'm not -- what a waste of money. I really don't think this product should be over the counter, plus is has nothing on the box listing any kind of side effects, or that the product could make you drowsy. That is really bad---it didn't even have a package insert stating any such things. With this posting site, now I can see why. I'll just stick to my Z-pack and lots of water. thank you.
