I tried NAC to prevent hair growth on my chin and face - it is suppose to remove the DHA in your system - it worked very well for this but I soon became dehydrated - it dries up liquids too much for me - I was only taking 600 twice a day - I found it was harder to breathe

Tried it for hangover prevention, but had the impressive side effect of making me really clear headed with more energy. I dont know what undiagnosed condition i may have that it seems to be treating but it is magic. I take about 3g daily.

Broke out with a severe case of hives on the back of my head. Benedryl and medicated shampoo alleviated but did not stop the intense itching.

Comment:
I recently had the beginnings of bronchitis. This is the second winter I experienced these symptoms. My lungs produced so much mucous that I would choke and cough constantly. I started taking 300 mg NAC twice daily. Within a few days I noticed a decrease in mucous. Three weeks later I have no problem at all. I will always have NAC on hand.
