Can I take NAC with with other psychiatric medications?
NAC may promote many benefits as an additional support tool while on other psychiatric medications. NAC can be liver protective (which often psychiatric medications are processed through your liver, and have potential side effects that can lead to liver dysfunction). It can also help promote healthy glutamate/GABA balance, which can help with irritability of the brain. As always, for an individualized approach to care, please consult with your medical provider about all the medications you are taking before taking this supplement.
Is NAC safe for children?
There is a robust level of evidence and safety in children and the use of NAC.
How long should I take this before there is a noticeable effect?
Oral administration of NAC has a peak of 1.5-2 hours, with a half life of about 6 hours. Some people will notice the effect of NAC at the peak. Since the half life is short, consideration of taking NAC more frequently throughout the day should be considered. Please consult your healthcare provider for more personalized instructions.
Can I mix this with food or drink if I cannot swallow a capsule?
Yes. You can open and dump the capsules and mix in whatever is easiest to ingest. See our information on ways to help take supplements if you cannot swallow pills here.
Can I take this supplement if I am pregnant or nursing?
NAC is possibly safe in pregnancy and there is insufficient evidence to recommend during lactation. Please consult your health care provider before use.
