Thank-you both for answering. May I ask where you both live? Packman, I'm so sorry, I can't imagine how much pain you must have been in at times. Due to all my injuries, and surgeries, I feel that at times I really do need something stronger than Vicodin ES. But, I think it would shock my Dr. to ask. I was also seeing a DO, who I asked for Guaifenesin, is this the med you are always talking about Mikie? I have read many books on fibromyalgia, and found out about Guia., by the book, "WHAT YOUR DOCTOR MAY NOT TELL YOU ABOUT FIBROMYALGIA". The DO had to look in her PDR, as she wan't familiar with this, and told me that she didn't think the pharmacy even made it anymore. But, did order me some, as she must have found it harmless, and told me, one older lady always calls in for a Rx for it, and says it helps her, I did not ask what Dx she had. I just started taking it. But, I do not know exactely how much to take. Mikie, how much do you take? what she ordered for me, and what the pharmacy had was Q-BID LA tabs. and I am to take 1/2 tab daily. Is this drug the same?
