Started taking NAC after stopping?

I started taking Nac after stopping because I ran out.  My brain seems to be very spacey again.  Very forgetful and short term memory gone.  Is this or was this a problem with anyone.  Could you shedd some light on this?  I also have been on all the supplements on this sight and feel much better is it because it is killing the cells which contain the chlamydia( bursting the cell membraines).  It feels like the NAC is right there in my brain blasting away.  I also am trying to get off of work tommorow so I can keep the doctor appointment I have to get started with some kind of abx. 

Starting and stopping NAC is okay. Brain fog is going to come and go as you ramp up with the protocol, but should become less problematic as time goes by. It seems to lift pretty early in treatment for most people, though physical debilities take longer to resolve.

Think of all the antioxidants on that list of vitamins and supps and you'll realize why you feel better. Your hair, complexion and nails are going to benefit quickly, too.

Thank you Mac,   It makes me feel a little bit better.  I hope I can get to that doctor Monday or Friday for sure.  I" ll let you know if I am going on Monday.  I'll post later if my supervisor calls me back.  Chipper

Totally understand. Kind of hard to pay those pesky doctor bills without a job/income!  Image removed.  Watch for other responses here; it's amazing how much people on the site know about supps and vitamins and natural remedies.

Mac,    Does NAC work on chlamydia only or can it blast other bacteria?  I just thought that it might work on several.  Oh, and I will probably have to call and reschedule appt for Fri. I hope they still fit me in.  Chipper

I don't think we know the answer to that question. NAC is one of those weird things; you shouldn't have ANY reaction to taking it, but if you do have a reaction, it's likely you have cpn. Since cpn was only identified in the mid 90's, a weird reaction to NAC before now would likely have been dismissed as a fluke.

Anybody know if it has any other quirky attributes?

Glutathione is the major antioxidant of the immune system, and its level in immune cells controls how much they can release of reactive oxygen species (ROS) to kill pathogens.  More glutathione (which protects the immune cells), more ROS, more dead bacteria.  This is not primarily used against intracellular bacteria, but extracellular.  So it works less well on chlamydia than other bacteria.  Still, it is basic for health that you want good immune levels of glutathione.

Cysteine is the most commonly deficient precursor in the manufacture of glutathione, and vitamin C is needed to recycle glutathione, so glutathione levels are generally increased by taking vitamin C and NAC.

Drs. Stratton and Mitchell also believe cysteine alters the state of intracellular CPn by sulfur reactions, I don't know much about this.

You can also take glutathione directly, but it's destroyed by stomach acid, so it needs an empty stomach and a full glass of water.

Hi, Phaffa

The dosage that is recommended is 2400 mg, two capsules am and  two pm.  When I began, I started with two caps in the evening and woke up thinking I had caught a cold overnight.   Now, after five years, my nearly lifelong sinusitis is virtually gone - (happily!).
