I have been told that Mucinex products would help with my singular usage, but I am hypentensive. Can I take the OTC products?

I have chest congestion which seems to be getting better however I finished one bottle of Robitusson and I do not know if it is ok to continue with another dose. I still have slightly discolored mucus and cough.

How much would you give a 1000lb horse? My veterninarian has prescribed it for my horse but the Spect-tuss is not palatable for the horse--she refuses to eat it. I tasted it and agree with her!
