Paul St. Amand, M.D., Assistant Clinical Professor of Endocrinology at Harbor-UCLA (for the past 45 years), believes guaifenesin therapy can significantly help fibromyalgia patients combat their symptoms and lead normal, healthy lives. Dr. St. Amand is also in private medical practice in Marina del Rey, California, and is the co-author of "What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia. Dr. Paul St. Amand's theory of the medicinal effects of guaifenesin for FM is based on the premise that excess calcium and inorganic phosphate compounds accumulate within cells to produce a state of hyperpermeability. This condition allows excess fluids, ions and other unwanted substances to flow into cell mitochondria, disrupting normal cell function, including production of ATP, the body's energy source. Dr. St. Amand believes these factors cause the body to experience an energy-deprived state, in which widespread bodily functions are disrupted. Dr. St. Amand also feels a possible genetic defect in FM patients may be responsible for the abnormality in natural phosphate excretion, thus resulting in the buildup of these chemicals and subsequent symptoms.

The average starting dose is 300 mg twice a day, although some people who are sensitive to medications may have to start at 300 mg a day. (If you have reactive hypoglycemia as a perpetuating factor, you MUST be on a balanced "Zone" diet for the reversal to take place. (See "Mastering the Zone" by Barry Sears PhD for recipes and information.) Dr. St. Amand has found less patients needing the diet than I have, but his patients appear to be more sensitive to "blocking" factors.

Dr. St. Amand, an internist/endocrinologist and professor of medicine at UCLA, has now found that only about 50% of patients respond at this dosage, even these won't respond if they have reactive hypoglycemia. FMS is not a condition that responds to "cookbook" medicine.
