Additional published papers on NAC, Depression,etc NKP

In reply to Re: N-Acetyl Cysteine Newer Research, anyone try? Mtom, posted by NKP on January 18, 2021, at 16:08:25

Yes NKP I had read that article you linked. One has to be aware not only that there is often a trade-off in treating any condition, but that in many incidences, we don't know what the long-term trade-off might be. This goes for pharmaceutical drugs as well as supplements.

Caveats (and they may be significant) aside, I found another published paper, a 2016 meta-analysis of 5 Placebo controlled Clinical Trials examining N-acetyl Cysteine for depression. They found that NAC had a moderate effect over placebo in decreasing depressive symptoms and improving functionality over 12 to 24 week follow ups.

Here is another 2018 article "Application of N-Acetylcysteine in Psychiatric Disorders". It includes the abstract, not the full paper, but does have links to a number of tables from the paper summarizing results of studies investigating NAC for a number of psychiatric disorders. https://link.springer.com/chapter/10.1007%2F978-981-10-5311-5_12
