I take 600 mg of N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine a day. I started taking it for improving cognitive function and improving my neurological status (peripheral neuropathy) in addition to the mucous membrane benefit. I actually think it is possible that the N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine may also help with my mouth dryness. After all, the mouth is a mucous membrane.

Regardless, I have seen improvement in my mouth, nose, and cognitive function, some of which may be due to the N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine. Like I said, I do take a lot of supplements, several of which target the same problems, so it is a little difficult to know which supplement is the one responsible for the improvement. I tend to think they all help a little.

Here is a link to a study (UCLA Neurology Dept.) about reversing cognitive decline. N-Acetyl-L-Cysteine is one of the (many) supplements they recommend. I tend to agree with them that one thing is not going to significantly improve cognitive function but several things probably will make a significant difference.

Re: Asthma and Evoxac

So that is a thing? The medicines plus Salagen cause asthma flares, right? Increasing airway resistance or something? Darn...

Yeah I'll have to get the coq10... I think Salagen is worsening my cough variant asthma

  About the CoQ10 what doses are you suppose to take for dryness?  I don't have heart problems just dryness.

I'm giving ubiquinol, the active part of CO Q10 a go for more saliva.

See how it goes.

Hubby has begun using ubiquinol for energy.
It's suppressed his appetite, a side affect apparently.  Hope it helps him lose a little more weight.

I'm under weight so will cease ubiquinol if my appetite becomes suppressed.

As I posted before, I take the CoQ10 for fatigue.  I started at 100mg and now take 100mg in the morning and another at noon.  It takes about 3 wks for it to kick in.  The one thing I forgot to mention is that since it is used for fatigue, it should not be taken after 4P or it might keep you awake at night.

PS .. if you have heart problems or you take statins .. be SURE to add CoQ10.
   

this means that is OK to take Q10 or not, excuse me if i ask again but  english is not my language so i do not understand if BE SURE means its good or not
