I've reduced my dosage of NAC to 1200mg. I think the higher dosage was making me sleepy. I would rather not declare victory at this point, but I will certainly keep you informed. I have felt better since 5 days ago after about a week of treatment. However, I had started fish oil at the same time, so I don't know for sure which substance is responsible. My guess, though, is that it is the NAC. I like the idea that NAC acts as an antioxidant as well as being a precursor of glutathione.
I paid $23 for 150 600mg capsules. I use the Vitamin Shoppe brand. It is cheap stuff.
