Comment:
I take guaifenesin as part of the guaifenesin protocal for Fibromyalgia. It has been almost a complete salvation of allowing my to still function at a full time job and wean off most of the other prescribed meds I was on. I know that Fibro is not what guai is designed for, but when used in conjunction with the Protocol, it has been a wonderful tool.

Comment:
I have bronchiectasis. Guaifenesin has helped a lot over the years (over 20). It thins the mucus and enables me to get it up and out which is critical in order to prevent infections of the lungs from occurring.
