How long does the Guaifenesin Protocol take?

Everyone is so different.

But let me say this: Do NOT listen to people who say to just hold out another few weeks or months. MANY of us are so sick, it is actually going to take YEARS before we feel like a healthy person does.

But don’t get discouraged! You WILL have good hours, good days, good weeks periodically. Journal those days so you can look back and be encouraged.

This protocol is for the long haul. You have had a lifetime of buildup to get you as sick as you are now. The Guaifenesin Protocol will clear your symptoms 6 times faster than it went in. YES!! ๐Ÿ˜€ But remember, when did you first start to have more fatigue than your friends? When did you start to have pain enough to need medication? Now, at a rate of clearing a year in 2 months on Guaifenesin, how many years do you think it’s going to take you to feel truly WELL again? THAT will be your goal.

Don’t have all these huge expectations of wellness after only a few months! I just don’t want to see you discouraged and let down, when what others have said dosn’t happen to you! They are likely talking about those few hours or days of a cycle when they feel awesome, but it CYCLES, so it goes around and comes around again. ๐Ÿ™‚

Cycles and Flares are 2 different things. You no longer Flare, but you do have clearing cycles and it happens with 6 times the intensity it went in at. Remember the equation of clearing one year of deposits in 2 months?

Keepย  your chin up, keep trucking on, you CAN do this! And there are many many others who ARE doing this and just getting better and better. Be patient with yourself! <3

Also, remember to use your symptom journal to jot down every day how you are feeling withย  your symptoms. Later, you will want to look back and see how it’s changed!

Sometimes, we can make progress in lots of tiny ways, but not notice it for the huge elephant in the room called fatigue or pain. Make sure you ask someone who is going to care about you through this whole process over the years too. They usually see the changes before we do! <3 Big hugs and hang in there! <3

    Hi Christine,
    I’m just starting to investigate the guaifenesin protocol and SO appreciate the resources you’ve compiled here. One thing I can’t find an answer to, though, is how long one has to stay on the protocol? Am I looking at taking guaifenesin for the rest of my life to stay symptom-free?

      HI Jade! Sorry it’s taken me a while to get back to you, I’ve been gone on holidays and just got back last night ๐Ÿ™‚

      Have you found answers? DId you find my Facebook support group? Here’s the link to that group: Also, there is a book that I get my info from called “What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia” by Dr St Amand. It will help you to understand all this stuff! Here’s a link to where you can get copies:

      ok, so just in case you didn’t get answers, the Guaifenesin Protocol is helping your body with a problem that is caused by Fibromyalgia, that you are born with. The protocol dosn’t cure you, it treats the problem, so yes. You will need to stay on the protocol for a long as you want to be well or until there is a cure! ๐Ÿ™‚ I don’t worry about a cure because I know the protocol works though! ๐Ÿ™‚
