Well, it could increase the mucous associated with your UC. There are some women who take it to help them get pregnant...women produce a "special" cervical mucous when they're ovulating, which helps sperm survive. Women who don't produce a lot of cervical mucous naturally use guaifenesin to increase production of it...maybe just because it thins it out more? Anyway, if it can affect cervical mucous, why couldn't it affect intestinal mucous?
Symptoms began in November 2008, ~4 weeks after giving birth to my son.
Eased for ~3 weeks in December, possibly b/c of probiotic use?
Returned in January 2009 (with a vengeance), diagnosed with pancolitis on January 30.
