Best Price For Guai Pills

While picking up my prescriptions this month at Kroger, I decided to ask the pharmacist if she had ever heard of using guai to treat fibromyalgia before. Actually, it wasn't a conscious decision, it just sort of popped out of my mouth as I was paying for the medicine. She hadn't heard of it but was really interested in the details (because her mother has fibro) so I told her the basics of what Dr. St. Amand says in his book and how it has made such a difference for me and is the reason I've been able to come off of three medications. She was very surprised and told me that Kroger has a very low price on guai, just a few dollars per box. I checked it out and she was right, after several thorough searches for the lowest price the best I was able to do was $8/mo. and I had to order 16 months worth to get this price! Kroger has 30 ct. boxes of 400 mg. pills for $2.67, which would make it only $5/mo. So if you're in the market for some guaifenesin and have a Kroger near you, I highly recommend getting it there.

PS-Another thing this pharmacist mentioned sort of off the record is that she has many people come in with fibromyalgia and often times they are overmedicated and the prescriptions can actually make things worse. I definitely experienced that when my rheumatologist added cymbalta and a couple of other medications to my already long list.
