(NAC) N Acetyl Cysteine please help if you know

Postby Ben21 » Tue Feb 14, 2012 4:30 pm

I'm wondering if anyone here knows anything about this? (specifically about hypertension)

I have been taking (NAC) N Acetyl Cysteine for OCD treatment as an NDMA antagonist, and it seems to work pretty well. I am taking 600mg every six hours. Is is safe to up my daily dosage to 3600 mg? The very first time I took it I felt a kick after about 30 minutes. It doesn't appear to work the full six hours and there are sustained release tablets that are 600 mg but they are dispersed over time and are therefore less potent.

I also had to deal with some tremors and fasiculations and this seems to help out a lot with that.

I want to take one immediate release and one sustained release three times daily for a total of 3600 mg daily. Is this safe?
My doctor does not know enough about it to tell me what the negative side effects could be.
Some people have said that it will cause pulmonary hypertension. Does anyone have experience with this or know anyone who does?

Please don't tell me to go consult someone I have been dealing with this for the past five years of my life and I finally found something that gives me relief.

Ben, as I posted in the General Interest forum, the amount suggested by David Wheldon is 2400mg a day but although 3600mg seems a lot, if you want to try, you will only wee out what you take too much: it's not a poison.

Ben, I take 1500mg a day fine and will end up on 2 a day (3,000mg) without worry if it doesn't give me too much heartburn...

12/10/10 - 1st procedure, Poland. Symptoms worsened. No improvement.
Verdict: I urge caution + am taking a back seat watching research ATM.
13/02/12 - Started Wheldon ABX protocol.

You might want to try magnesium, too, for spasms. I was awakened every 15 to 45 minutes by full-body spams when I was first diagnosed, and the magnesium helped almost immediately.
