I dont know where to start NAC test



I have had rosacea for several years. Started topical ketaconizole and it mostly went away.

 all blemishes went away and most redness. some slight redness remains. 

also had low grade fevers often for weeks in a row, every night, started 8 years ago in college.

also diagnosed graves disease, went on methimazole and it is in remission according to my endo.

also have general feeling of bodily malaise, weakness

also have non-crusting type of blepharitis, or dry eye syndrome producing sharp needle like pain in eyes, meibomian gland disfunction, the oil part of the tears is too thick like toothpaste, eye not lubricated. occasional eye redness, sometimes halo around iris.


I suspect I have Chlamydia pnemonia though no doctor will test me for it.

3 days ago I started the NAC test.


First two days I took 300 mg. (split the caps and poured half out) no reaction.

3rd day, I took 600mg...whole pill.

today is 4th day and I have taken no pill at all because I woke up with 3 blemishes, one is very large (have not had these in 2 months) and I have had nausea which has gotten worse as the day wears on.


Do I have Chlamydia pnemonia?

SHould I continue the NAC? if so, at what dose?

 I am not very knowledgeable at all about this so I am stabbing in the dark, but I think this

could be what has been plagueing me all these years.

eveningdream, welcome. Your reaction may very well have been to the NAC. We have a wonderful Rosacean here who will guide you, I bet. Keep reading and try increasing the NAC. The dose we aim for is 2400 mg a day, split into 2 doses. Meanwhile, keep reading and start the supplements. They are very important and will help you bedy prepare for war. I'm with you - it is probably CPn.

Sounds about right, Rica! Eveningdream (lovely visual there), I'd back off to 300mg for a few days. No reason to rush it.
