N-Acetyl Csteine Has helped keep me out of the Hospital.
I have severe Emphysema and I have had it for over 20 years. In the early days I wasnt aware that I had Emphysema, I thought that I had Asthma and Bronchitis. I 2-3 times a year..was going to the hospital for 3 day stays at least. When I asked what they found they replied basically nothing. On this last stay around 2008 The staff doctor that visited my room was talking to me and I suggested that my main problem was my Asthma. He told me that that was not my problem, my problem was that I had sever Emphysema, I was shocked. I had never told that I has Emphysema at all, fpr about 10 years I was told that I had C.O.P.D. I asked him if he would be my doctor and he agreed. He said that people changed doctors all the time and it would not be a problem. Now to get to the point he suggested that I take N-Acetyl Cysteine and see if it helped. He told me that the primary use was not for Lung support but a side benefit was it helped support of Lung function. So I tried it and have not been to the hospital for those minor bouts since. Do not get me wrong it didnt cure me but it has helped very much. The main reason that I changed doctors was they wouldnt tell me what I had they kept using C.O.P.D. but that I want to know what I am fighting so why are they afraid to tell me. Any way that is how I found out, I am just saying if I hadnt been taking this i doubt rhat I would be writing this review. Get your doctors approval before you try it.
If you experience mucous build up in your lungs, thois is your answer
I prefer 1,000 mg, but many do well with 600 mg. About every 6-8 hours or wait until you suffer
