Since no one here had any info, did some research on above. Googling Guai or guaifenesin+FMS or MCS or CFS
produced a lot of info and TWO yahoo support groups.
Also the info that this is OTC NON_PRESCRIPTRION treatment. Lots of folks just use MUCINEX!!!! [Yeah, that cold med with the gross bugger cartoon characters!]
I happened to have lots of Robitussin DM on hand [1 tsp=100 mg Guai] and was able to pick up some 600 mg T/R Mucinex tabs. Started about a week ago with the usual 300 mg twice a day starting dose. The first few days were hell...turns out I had accidentally miscalculated the liquid dose that I was taking in the eves. Was taking 1350 mg instead of 300 mg! Result was insomnia and a bear of a symptom exacerbation cycle. Temporarily needed some heavy duty pain meds.
Once I got on the 300 mg twice a day, that was also too much. As of today, only using 150 mg or 1/4 of a 600 mg Mucinex, twice a day. Will take about a week to see if cycling symptoms are tolerable and chemical sensitivities still reduced at that dose. It is a fine-tuning process, very individual.
This med is actually supposed to reverse the underlying cause of these conditions, not just treat symptoms. There are lots of testimonies out there, in the Yahoo groups and elsewhere.
Check it out for yourself. I am so glad that I did, rather than let my considerable prejudice and suspicion regarding prescription meds hold me back.
This is the first time in years I have had strength, energy, mental focus, and calm emotions all at once, hour after hour day after day. I have hope that the recurrent crashes and setbacks will soon be a thing of the past. LIFE SHOULD BE LIKE THIS ALWAYS, FOR ALL OF US!!!!
