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.

Chronic Fatigue – Fibromyalgia Part III Gerber Medical Clinic

R. Paul St. Amand, MD, a UCLA endocrinologist, makes a good case for phosphate retention in the muscles and ligaments as the root cause of fibromyalgia. In his book What Your Doctor May Not Tell You About Fibromyalgia2 he recommends increasing dosages of guaifenesin, the cough expectorant, be taken to remove the phosphates. It has many successful patient responses but requires a diet avoiding salicylates which involves more than 1,000 different foods and herbs and inhibits patient compliance with his regimen. Committed patients have had moderate or good success with his program but progress is usually gradual and aggravations, especially early on in the therapy, require careful titration of the guaifenesin.
