Perrigo Guaifenesin

Guaifenesin Perrigo2Perrigo Guaifenesin has been turbulent at best, as far as providing a reliable product goes. Figured it was worth a post!

Perrigo released this statement on their website:

“…an article dated January 4, 2016: “Perrigo announced the temporary suspension of sales of its Guaifenesin 600mg extended-release product pending the resolution of challenges related to an excipient used in the production of the product”. Excipient is some kind of long term stabilizer.”

Perrigo is the Guaifenesin that is the generic brand for many stores like Wal Mart, Walgreens and CVS. It is the one with the tiny amount of compressed sugar in it. It also seems to be the one most people tolerate the best when compared to MDR/ fibro pharmacy Guaifenesin. See this post for more on the different Guaifenesins.

Guaifenesin Equate Guaifenesin WalgreensThe word I want to remind you of, once you pull yourself off the floor: TEMPORARY. They plan on this being a temporary suspension of sales. Last time this happened however, it was 6 months or more before it came back on the shelves.

So my advice? Stock up! Buy MANY bottles, order online, get all you can. Or switch to MDR/ Fibro Pharmacy Guaifenesin, which is like Old Faithful, always there! But it can be a bit volatile, some people struggle with it. They do make 2 different ones, one is vegetarian, the other one isn’t, you may have to ask them. Jim is the Pharmacist there, and super nice and easy to talk Guaifenesin CVS Pharmacyto 🙂 MDR/Fibro Pharmacy does have some Perrigo guai in stock right now, so you can still order from them till they run out 🙂

If you are in Canada, DEFINITELY go with Estevan Pharmacy Guaifenesin! Kyle is the pharmacist and he is so amazing and kind 🙂 Long Acting Pure Guaifenesin through Estevan Pharmacy, Victoria BC. Speak with Kyle. Phone number: 1 250 598 2517 He is very kind but will have a lot of questions, he will treat you like his own patient. He sells both LA and FA in many sizes. He does ask for a prescription though, so keep that in mind before calling! <3 If you fax him the prescription from the doctors office you get the script from, that is the fastest way to get it to him.

There are some people that choose to have their local pharmacy make their guaifenesin for them, but I strongly advise against this, since you can’t be SURE it’s working and may not find out till many years down the road one way or the other. Not worth the risk!

Hang in there, be patient and switch to a different brand if you need to. If you are switching, a good plan is to take a week off in between the switch, usually makes for a much easier transition <3 It’s going to be ok! You will get better!

You are not alone! Hugs <3

    Thank you for your help and support Christine. Two boxes have been sold today and already shipped. There are two left. So glad to be able to offer them to people who not only need them, but will also enjoy a break in the price.

    As of Dec.21, I now have one box of Perrigo left. If interested in a bargain go to the previous posting of my eBay link. Thanks again to Christine for allowing me to make these available on this site.

    • Christine says:

      THanks for reminding me, I bumped it again, hopefully someone will snatch up that last box soon 🙂 Let me know if not and I’ll keep bumping it. 🙂 Thanks again!! 🙂

        Hi Christine, once again thanks for letting your readers know when guaifenesin becomes available at a deeply discounted price. If any of your readers are interested then please visit the following eBay link:
        The ad states:
        Many of you reading this ad may very well be following the Dr. St. Almand Guaifenesin Protocol. Guai600/NF (sugar free and dye free) is currently being sold by the Fibro Pharmacy where this item was purchased for $ 199.75 US plus shipping for the 500 count container. I ordered this for my spouse who followed the protocol for many years successfully, but is now under the guidance of a local Naturopath and is following a different protocol and no longer needs her Guai600. We paid $ 297.94 Cdn (converted from $ 199.75 US plus $ 19 US shipping). For someone taking lets say 2 to 4 capsules per day you have yourself about a 4 to 8 month supply well within the expiry date of July 2018. We are willing to sell this brand new sealed Guai600/NF for $ 199.75 Cdn plus $ 19 Cdn shipping with tracking. That is an average of about $ 40 Cdn per 100 count. In view of the exchange rate whether you are buying from USA or Canada, that’s about 1/3 off the price. Compare to Mucinex (or Perrigo guai if you can still find some) you will not likely find a better price. Of course we want to recover some of our costs, but hopefully this helps someone in need of a good supply at a very good price.

  3. Ed says:

    Well, that was quick. The Guai600 is sold. I hope it was purchased by someone from this site. That’s it. We are all out of Guaifenesin and thank you again Christine for allowing my postings.

    • Christine says:

      Wonderful! Yes, I have been posting your sale regularly. I’m surprised it took this long!! Thank you so much for sharing with us and giving a good deal, you’ve been a huge help and blessing 🙂

  4. Linda Armbuster says:

    I cannot find guaifenesin anywhere. Had been using the Equate brand solid white type. I think I have a reaction to the dye in certain brands. Do you know of anywhere I can purchase these? I take 600 mg. Twice a day. Thank you.

  5. Catherine says:

    Any more news on Perrigo guaif? I’m out and it’s killing me!!!

    • Christine says:

      Hi Catherine! Yes there is a new generic coming out! You should be able to order it online if You can’t find it. Walgreens, walmart and CVS has it! there’s a 600mg and a 1200mg pill. make sure to get the ones that have no blue dye in them! I will be making a new post soon about the new info on guaifenesin’s we have found to work for the protocol 🙂

      • Catherine says:

        Thanks so much, Christine! For some reason that I don’t understand, Perrigo works better for me than Mucinex or New Formula. I hope the new generic has the same effect!

        • Christine says:

          You are not alone in how you react to the different guais. Many struggle with NF with tummy issues and Mucinex is awful because of that blue dye and FA layer. I hope the new generic is even better for you! <3

Leave a lovely comment! I read and respond to all comments here and love to hear from you! <3
