Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good evening, Please can you advise what your question is first?
NAC is used to protect the liver in over dose of drugs such as Paracetamol. The immunosuppresant shouldn't be a problem. If you however do not have any liver compromise then is there any need for this?
If you do not have a compromised liver, deranged liver function. There is no known interaction. My question is if your liver is fine, do you need to take this? You should only take something if there is benefit to be gained
As it is not licensed for this purpose, as a doctor I cannot advise you on the dose sorry
It shouldn’t reduce the medication, but it can cause gastric issues which may reduced the absorption of your medication which is also a risk to consider
Yes but what if I take nac 6 hours after ruxolitnib because the issue is the taste in my mouth taste of medication its horrible when I take nac my taste is normal
You said you want to take it to protect your liver, not to make your medication taste better
That is certainly not a reason to use NAC to make the taste better.
As said, maybe weigh up the risks. You initially said to protect your liver. Improving taste I feel cannot be justified as I am sure there are better reasons than using an unlicensed drug!
And taste being better is certainly not a sign of liver problems
All the best with this
I can taste medication in my mouth so obviously my liver is working hard on the medication. I'm taking to protect liver and my body I was taking nac before but I stopped but I feel like now I can taste medicine in my mouth
I wouldn’t say the taste is anything to do with your liver
