    Addendum To My Earlier Post About 'Guaifenesin'

    Supplements And Such

    Ok...this is what I have found to be effective on myself, so far. 1. white tea. I recommend you drink a lot of it, hot. 2. quercetin. I take it in what's called a megadose? 12 800-milligram capsules. It has no upward limit of toxicity or effectiveness, so it just depends on how...
