Do I need to?

I know it’s oartnof the protocol for a reason, just trying to save a few pennies where I can. Would you say it’s one of the more important ones?

I wouldn’t say it is - I took it for awhile but it was one of my supplements that I cut out.
I was spending too much $$ and taking too many caps/tablets/tinctures

Curious to see what others’ opinions are.

There’s just too many things - and it gets so expensive.

Same here, My LLMD suggested it early in my treatment, but as my supplement list grew I had to eliminate items that I saw having limited value/results as money is tight. I think I tried it again a few years later, then dropped it again.

I keep a list of all current Rx meds, OTC supplements and Vit, as well as a running list of all past Rx, and past Supps with start and stop dates. Its a good reference when you have Lyme brain and sometimes forget what you had for lunch.

The NAC really helped me for a few months, but the it just didn't do anything else after a while and I stopped it. I think it is a good source of sulfur, and maybe it only helps if you are low on it.
