Despite the widespread hype, there is no scientific evidence that guaifenesin
provides any benefit as a fibromyalgia treatment
. However, as a relatively inexpensive and nontoxic treatment, people may still want to consider giving it a try.
If you decide to do so, please enlist the help of your healthcare provider, and be prepared to discover that guaifenesin may not work. Do not place too much hope in the treatment; otherwise, you may risk feeling hopeless, discouraged, and perhaps disillusioned if it fails.
