ACETYLCYSTEINE (NAC) is used along with other treatments to relieve chest congestion due to thick or abnormal mucous secretions in people with lung conditions including asthma, emphysema, bronchitis and cystic fibrosis (an inborn disease that causes problems with breathing, digestion, and reproduction). Acetylcysteine is in a class of medications called mucolytic agents. It works by thinning the mucus in the air passages to make it easier to cough up the mucus and clear the airways.
- Mucolytic agent for the treatment of acute and chronic respiratory diseases associated with excessive secretion of bronchial secretions: bronchitis, tracheitis, bronchiolitis, pneumonia, bronchiectasis, cystic fibrosis, lung abscess, pulmonary emphysema, laryngotracheitis, interstitial lung diseases, atelectasis of the mucous membrane stopper).
- Catarrhal and purulent otitis media, sinusitis, sinusitis (relief of secretion discharge).

A synthetic N-acetyl derivative of the endogenous amino acid L-cysteine, a precursor of the antioxidant enzyme glutathione. Acetylcysteine reduces disulfide bonds in mucoproteins, resulting in liquification of mucus. The agent also regenerates liver stores of glutathione. Some evidence suggests that acetylcysteine may exert an anti-apoptotic effect due to its antioxidant activity.
