Is fluimucil(acetylcysteine) -200 mg granules for solution being gargled or not?
Asked by Wally Porada 1 month ago.

Acetylcysteine is the generic name for Mucomyst. It's an expectorant or more precisely it thins out mucous when it comes in direct contact with it. We used to nebulize it with a bronchodilator added because it could be irritating to the mucous membranes of the bronchial tree. It was effective in thinning out very tenacious secretions in certain pulmonary conditions. It is also used in the treatment of Acetaminophen (Tylenol) overdose. It smells and tastes like rotten eggs, or sulfurous odor.Something I just learned is that is used in certain psychological disorders. As to whether it has a use when it is gargled , I have never heard nor could I find a reference to it. God bless. Answered by Kyung Warner 1 month ago.

What is the difference between N - Acetylcysteine and N - Acetylcarnosine?
Asked by Jalisa Ingran 1 month ago.

N-Acetylcysteine, among other things, is used to prevent liver failure in people who have overdosed on x-rays, seriously. This is the only way to explain the difference in the two. The molecular structure of your red blood cells is identical to chlorophyll except the middle atom. Same with the above two. Medically, both of the above two are labeled NAC, but for the first to become the second, the first must lose an 'arm' or a 'leg.' The second one is used for dogs with cataracts because when the sloution is put in the eye of the dog and it soaks in the cornea and goes into the aqueous humor, it losses the N-Acetyl and becomes carnosine.

Is it safe to give N-acetylcysteine to a 4 years old with recurrent otitis media?
what's the dose? Asked by Chasidy Sanborn 1 month ago.

N- acetylcysteine is an very strong anti-viral. I am not a doctor but I would imagine it can't be harmful in small doses. Try a 500mg capsule just once a day, or less. It is basically just a precursor to glutathione. So if he gets too much I imagine he will just poop a lot. I would also recommend trying the probiotic route. That is another strong immune booster. Anything but antibiotics has been my experience. However, I do want to encourage you to check with a holistic practitioner in your area. They will know of more possible dangers and side effects that I may not be aware of. Answered by Dwight Caparelli 1 month ago.

Can we use acetylcysteine to treat paracetamol overdose?
when we take more paracetamol tablet Asked by Roderick Thaggard 1 month ago.

Yes its a pharmacological agent used mainly as a mucolytic and in the management of paracetamol overdose. For these indications, acetylcysteine is available under the trade names Mucomyst and Parvolex Additional info: After reading what you wrote more closely I sure hope you are not talking about YOU. Taking acetylcysteine alone is not the cure all for acetaminophen/paracetamol overdose. If you took too much you need to go to the ER now. The stomach should be emptied promptly by lavage or by induction of emesis with syrup of ipecac. If an acetaminophen overdose is suspected, a serum acetaminophen assay should be obtained as early as possible, but no sooner than four hours following ingestion. Liver function studies should be obtained initially and repeated at 24-hour intervals. The antidote, N-acetylcysteine, should be administered as early as possible, preferably within 16 hours of the overdose ingestion for optimal results, but in any case, within 24 hours. Answered by Telma Wibberley 1 month ago.

It depends on the amount they have taken, but she'll probably be fine. You have to take a ridiculous amount of paracetamol for it to actually kill you, and even then it's not an instant effect. You should ring the emergency services and have them assessed, or have their stomach pumped to get rid of what they've taken. Even if they don't feel any pain, they can still suffer from liver damage or stomach ulcers due to and overdose, which is why it is urgent to go and find medical help. Answered by Elana Lackner 1 month ago.

Ten small and low-methodological quality randomised trials, one quasi-randomised study, and 48 observational studies were identified. It was not possible to perform relevant meta-analyses of randomised trials that have addressed our outcome measures. Activated charcoal, gastric lavage, and ipecacuanha are able to reduce the absorption of paracetamol, but the clinical benefit is unclear. Of these, activated charcoal seems to have the best risk-benefit ratio. N-acetylcysteine seems preferable to placebo/supportive treatment, dimercaprol, and cysteamine, but N-acetylcysteine's superiority to methionine is unproven. It is not clear which N-acetylcysteine treatment protocol offers the best efficacy. No strong evidence supports other interventions for paracetamol overdose. N-acetylcysteine may reduce mortality in patients with fulminant hepatic failure (Peto OR 0.26, 95% CI 0.09 to 0.94, one trial). Liver transplantation has the potential to be life saving in fulminant hepatic failure, but refinement of selection criteria for transplantation and long-term outcome reporting are required.

Are there any alternatives to acetylcysteine inhalation med?
The med is not available now and i am having to "wean" my daughter off. Is there an alternative? Would giving mucinex help? Asked by Collin Serene 1 month ago.

Yes musinex may help. It is an expectorant. It works by thinning and loosening mucus in the airways, clearing congestion, and making breathing easier. Acetylcysteine is a derivative of cysteine; an acetyl group is attached to the nitrogen atom. This compound is sold as a dietary supplement commonly claiming antioxidant and liver protecting effects. It is used as a cough medicine because it breaks disulfide bonds in mucus and liquefies it, making it easier to cough up. It is also this action of breaking disulfide bonds that makes it useful in thinning the abnormally thick mucus In addition to being available as an over-the-counter nutritional supplement, acetylcysteine is also marketed under these trade names: Fluimucil (Zambon).

Dog ate tylenol, took him to vet, got him acetylcysteine, how long do affects of tylenol take to show signs?
not sure how many pills about 60 pound dog Asked by Golden Wrights 1 month ago.

If he got the N-acetylcysteine,then he probably won't show any signs of liver damage.Did the vet give you anything else to give the dog? There is a good liver protectant called Denosyl that is made just for dogs.Make sure he drinks a lot of water as well,to flush out the toxins. Answered by Dianna Bernardon 1 month ago.

Did you ask your vet anything when you took your dog in? The vet can answer your questions best, based on how many Tylenols were eaten and how much antidote was given. I would think your vet would tell you what signs to look for, in case you need to bring the dog back for further treatment. Answered by Raylene Simler 1 month ago.


Would N-acetylcysteine (NAC) be able to reverse acetaminophen poisoning from a year ago?
This webpage sugggests that this is possible, but I don't know how long they are talking about :"NAC is most effective when administered within 8 hours of ingestion. When indicated, however, NAC should be administered regardless of the time since the overdose. Therapy with NAC has been shown to... Asked by Reiko Causby 1 month ago.

I think what the article is suggesting is that even a few days (48 hrs) after overdosing the use of the antidote may be beneficial. I would highly doubt if after a year the antidote would be effective for the reasons below. Paracetamol (acetaminophen) is converted to a hepatotoxic (liver damaging) metabolite which also is nephrotoxic (kidney damaging), mainly due to the fact that these "locations" are where the metabolite may be found in high concentrations. The antidote is thought to work by binding to the toxic metabolite and converting it into a non-toxic substance. Since the half life for paracetamol is relativley short I would highly doubt that remnents from the initial overdosing are still present. Also if you are on other medications precautions must be taken before taking N-acetylcysteine. The damage done to your liver/kidneys from that overdose a year ago will not be reversed by this but if you are still uncertain the best thing for you to do it talk to your Pharmacist or GP.

Hi there - I'm planning to start to take N-Acetylcysteine for it's reported lessening of trichotillomania symptoms. I went to GNC (a vitamin/health store) and the only "NAC" they had was N-Acetyl L=Cysteine. I was wondering if L-Cysteine is the common form or if I need to be worried about taking it rather than the "non-L" NAC. Thanks guys Answered by Nilda Branham 1 month ago.

Naturally occuring amino acids have the L form. It is unlikely that you can easily buy the D form. The D,L form would probably have been made synthetically. Unless the D form is required for the effect you are seeking, what is at the GNC is probably what you want. Answered by Rolando Swanick 1 month ago.
