Oct 19, 2008 (Started Jul 30, 2008)

  • Effectiveness
    Moderate (for Parkinson's disease)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Never taken as prescribed
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: As needed
Advice & Tips: We didn't know, when we started, what to expect. The dyskinesia vanushed in the first week of two pills a week. Since then, I have stopped for two days and nothing happened, which discribes the dyskinesia as due to a build up toxins which I did not wait long enough to build back up again. I'm presently taking one pill a day. One doctor encouraged me, another doctor wanted nothing to do with this trial. NAC is available over the counter and often prescribed to break up mucus. That's a plus too! Nobody prescribed it to me.
Cost: < $25 monthly
