N-acetylcysteine (NAC)

Recommended Posts

Norcalmom, I do know our doc took DD's weight into consideration when giving us dosage. He didn't want us to go higher than 5 capsules (600mg ea) and she is 130lbs.


Thanks for all the replies. I think I am going to start my son on it, and I think I am going to take it too since it looks like a general supplement for overall good health. I plan to start him nex tweek and will look into dosing info and let you know what I find out for kids as well as general well being. I haven't found anything that says it can be harmful...which is almost weird, since in high doeses almost anything can hurt you.

Would you mind sharing what brand/strength you use for both NAC and Inositol? I get the dear-in-the-headlights look when I go get supplements, and I can't decide what brand/strength etc.


My son is really struggling with scrupulosity right now, it's kind of all that's left of the PANDAS at the moment, but it is very strong.





What did you find helped with the scrupulosity?  This is what my son battles and I too believe it is the residual effect of the PANS.  We are doing supplements and low dose SSRI in the hopes that we can calm things enough to get back into therapy which will give him coping tools when things do flare up.

We've been using NAC about a year and I have noticed that it definitely helps with DD14's OCD issues. In fact, since using high doses of NAC and Quercitin I have not seen any scrupulocity whatsoever (it was really bad last year). She is still very anxious and Perseverates on certain topics but no true OCD symptoms.



What is a high dose for NAC?
