How to take NAC? (N-acetyl-cysteine)


I just got my NAC in the mail. I have been all over the net. Can anyone tell me with certainty whether you take this stuff with an empty stomach, or not, and what dosages are recommended? I see 600mg 2x a day by some and then I see HIV positive and cancer patients taking huge doses.Any clues or references would be appreciated.  


David Wheldon suggests 600mg 2x per day. You should take a look at the Protocols Compared forum, which has comments by both David and Chuck Stratton on the protocols, and summaries of each.

On Wheldon/Stratton protocol for Cpn in CFS/FMS since December 2004.

Hello Daunted,I take 600 mg 2 or 3 times a day, but I never take anything on an empty stomach.  If I do, I eat something straight away afterwards.  If I forget and take two together, my feet go very tingly.Sarah

Completed Stratton/Wheldon regime for aggressive secondary progressive MS in June 2007, after four years, three of which intermittent.   Still improving bit by bit and no relapses since finishing treatment.
