What is guaifenesin and pseudoephedrine (Guaifenex PSE 60)?

Guaifenesin is an expectorant. It helps loosen congestion in your chest and throat, making it easier to cough out through your mouth.

Pseudoephedrine is a decongestant that shrinks blood vessels in the nasal passages. Dilated blood vessels can cause nasal congestion (stuffy nose).

Guaifenesin and pseudoephedrine is a combination medicine used to treat stuffy nose, sinus congestion, and cough caused by allergies or the common cold.

Guaifenesin and pseudoephedrine may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.
