    Siri, I agree with your pronunciation. I remember seeing a cough syrup TV ad years ago in which it was pronounced:
    gwy'-ah-fin-EH-sin.
    I'm sure that has prompted many a mispronunciation.

    Is it possible that there is more than one way of pronouncing it? For example I've heard the med Lyrica pronounced two different ways by different experts.

    Years back when it was still Rx. It was called glyceryl guaiacolate (talk about a mouth full of sounds.

    I've called it both "gwy a Fen' a sin" and "gwy a Fe NESS' in."
