What not to use:
Guaifenesin is an ingredient in many cough
mixtures and decongestants, but these are not good sources of the medication
and should not be used to treat fibromyalgia. Any pure guaifenesin that
has no added pseudoephedrine, dextramethorphan, or any of the other compounds
that may cause side effects is recommended. Liquid guaifenesin preparations
are inappropriate because of the low dosage and the sugar, sorbitol, alcohol,
or dye contents.
The many symptoms of fibromyalgia could
easily mask some other condition and may therefore require the input of
a physician before and during initial treatment. It could be dangerous
to assume all symptoms are due to fibromyalgia.
