Guaifenesin for anxiety?

I know this is used for depression and fibromyalgia. It's an ingredient in OTC cough syrup. has anyone used it for anxiety?

Thanks!

Sue

Guaifenesin is thins the mucous in your chest or head ..so you can get it out of your body. Maybe there is something else that is similar that is for anxiety..

Re: Guaifenesin for anxiety?

how about gabapentin? that is the generic name for neurontin. One of my coworkers takes it for her fibromyalgia.

Gabapentin is very expensive--I gave it to my dog for seizures.

Re: Guaifenesin for anxiety?

there has been alot of hype about fibro and guaifenesin--some swear by it, others say it is quackery. i lean toward quackery and i really don't see how a mucus thinner could possibly help anxiety. what has been proven to help is the amino acids, gaba, 5htp, l-theanine, st john's wort, samE--i take a great, inexpensive amino complex from puritans pride. the samE can be expensive--but it does help with depression. l-tryptophan is another good amino that helps with sleep problems. hope this helps! also--you have to take a good b-complex!! and magnesium!

Chamomile tea is much safer; there are also homepathic products in health food stores that are natural anxiety relievers.
