Acetylcistine
Post: 

Has anyone tried the supplement Acetylcistine ( an amino acid available like a vitamin) for help with compulsion? Lockdown has been really hard for me to maintain my attempts not to pull. Too isolating and triggering. Any experience with amino-acid supplements would be appreciated. Thanks

Just stopped taking this after 2 weeks of really really disrupted sleep. I googled the heck out of it and couldn't find any correlation between NAC and sleep, but the night I stopped taking it I actually slept 7.5 hrs at night time. I'm not warning you off, just sharing my experience. I found no beneficial results from taking 600mg daily for 2 weeks so stopping was not an issue for me. My psychiatrist says some of her clients rave about how great it is. Just not me.

NAC really needs to be taken for 6 weeks to see if there is any benefit.... 2 weeks does not seem like enough time to know if it works... Dr Jon Grant did a study that said it helped 50% of people....
