For What Its Worth - Fibro Relief with Guaifenesin

Hi All -

I know there is a lot of controversy surrounding Mucinex/guaifenesin as a treatment for fibro.

Just wanted to share my story - I've been suffering from major muscle pain, fatigue, cognitive issues, back pain, neck pain, and facial pain for the past year and a half.

I started taking mucinex for the hell of it - I figured, I'm in enough pain, it can't hurt.

I take a ton - about 3600mg to 4800mg a day. That said, IT REALLY HELPED. I went from not being able to get out of bed in the morning to running 7 miles a day (my old self!).

I still have tons of symptoms, and it is no cure, but it really did help me, and if you're in pain, I think it is worth a shot. Doesn't seem to have any negative effects.

I've read that they use it a lot as a muscle relaxant, so that makes sense. They use it on animals from what I can tell, but it seems to work on me.

Not that expensive when you consider the costs of all the crap doctors put you on (i was on expensive blood pressure medication, anti-depressants, etc, none of which helped).



PS. I dont follow the "salicyte" free thing from Dr. Amand, just take the stuff.
