@otter2154– NAC should be taken with caution. It is a supplement even if you need a prescription for it. This has nitroglycerin in it and might not react well with other medications, treatments, or surgeries that you are taking or have planned.

lol, Vodka is good for many things, especially bloody mary's at brunch on Sundays. I think that it is more for pleasure than ridding yourself of mucus. It actually helps produce mucus. And it can also lead to short-term nasal congestion as the many blood vessels in your nasal cavity expand. And, sorry I have to say this, but excess drinking can cause a lot of damage to all your breathing tubes and lessen your ability for fighting infections.

Ironically I was in my pulmonologist’s office this morning (to review my first CT scan, which was good) and I mentioned the NAC supplement. He frowned and rolled his eyes saying that there is no proven benefit to the OTC supplement. I may drop it. And I have noticed extra mucus the morning after a few cocktails … so I’ve cut back a bit and have been watering down my vodkas *smile*.

@merpreb, your response to @otter2154 regarding bloody mary's at Sunday brunches brought a huge smile. I rarely drink more than a glass of wine occasionally but started celebrating holidays spent alone with a "special day" Bloody Mary! Although it has become a tradition, one bottle of the mix can last a long time! Smiles
