    Comment:
    NAC has helped me to stop biting my fingernails. The compulsion to bite was drastically reduced almost as soon as I started taking it, and that was enough for me to stop biting completely.

Because I can only take ... Show Full Comment

    I give 600 mg in a.m. and 600 mg in p.m. to my old dog who has breathing problems and a cough. Works very well. I take the same dosage myself with good results for asthma.

    Helps with non stimulating energy in Chronic fatigue. Not sure why it's being used for cancer. I've read NAC was used by the scientific community to see if the drugs are killing cancer cells through the common mechanism of increasing reactive oxygen species. If adding NAC stops the action of the anticancer agent, than it is assumed it was acting through oxidative action. In April 2010, Ko ... Show Full Comment

    I have been taking NAC for 3 months for a chronic cough due to radiation damage to my lung which caused fibrosis. I take it 2 times a day (600 mg) and it has stopped 95% of the cough.
