Common Name: N-Acetyl Cysteine Supplements
Strength: Multiple strength available
N-acetyl cysteine comes from the amino acid L-cysteine. Amino acids are the building blocks of proteins. N-acetyl cysteine has many uses as medicine.
N-acetyl cysteine is used to counteract acetaminophen (Tylenol) and carbon monoxide poisoning. It is also used for chest pain (unstable angina), bile duct blockage in infants, amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, Lou GehrigÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢s disease), AlzheimerÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢s disease, allergic reactions to the anti-seizure drug phenytoin (Dilantin), and an eye infection called keratoconjunctivitis. It is also used for reducing levels of a type of cholesterol called lipoprotein (a), homocysteine levels (a possible risk factor for heart disease) and the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients with serious kidney disease.
Some people use N- acetylcysteine for chronic bronchitis, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), hay fever, a lung condition called fibrosing alveolitis, head and neck cancer, and lung cancer. It is also used for treating some forms of epilepsy; ear infections; complications of kidney dialysis; chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS); an autoimmune disorder called SjogrenÃÂ¢Ã¢âÂ¬Ã¢âÂ¢s syndrome; preventing sports injury complications; radiation treatment; increasing immunity to flu and H1N1 (swine) flu; and for detoxifying heavy metals such as mercury, lead, and cadmium.
N-acetyl cysteine is also used for preventing alcoholic liver damage; for protecting against environmental pollutants including carbon monoxide, chloroform, urethanes and certain herbicides; for reducing toxicity of ifosfamide and doxorubicin, drugs that are used for cancer treatment; as a hangover remedy; for preventing kidney damage due to certain X-ray dyes; and for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV).
Indications and Usage:
Acetaminophen (Tylenol) poisoning. N-acetyl cysteine is effective in reducing the death rate and preventing the permanent harm caused by acetaminophen poisoning. For this use, N-acetyl cysteine given by mouth is as effective as N-acetyl cysteine given intravenously (by IV).
Collapse of part or all of a lung (atelectasis). N-acetyl cysteine helps treat collapsed lungs caused by mucus blockage.
Diagnostic lung tests. N-acetyl cysteine is helpful when used to prepare people for diagnostic lung tests.
Care of people with a tube in their windpipe (people who have undergone a tracheostomy). N-acetyl cysteine helps prevent crusting in people with a tube in their windpipe.
Bipolar disorder. Taking N-acetyl cysteine by mouth seems to help reduce depression symptoms in people with bipolar disorder.
Epilepsy seizures. Taking N-acetyl cysteine by mouth seems to help treat a certain type of epilepsy seizure.
A lung disease called fibrosing alveolitis. Taking N-acetyl cysteine by mouth seems to improve lung function in people with fibrosing alveolitis.
High levels of homocysteine. Taking N-acetyl cysteine by mouth seems to reduce homocysteine levels, a possible risk factor for heart disease.
High levels of blood fat. Taking N-acetyl cysteine by mouth seems to reduce levels of a blood fat called lipoprotein(a) in people with high levels of this blood fat at baseline.
