Ipf and nac

Has anyone with IPF used NAC? I have IPF and started taking NAC, which is supplement, about 2 weeks ago. I can't believe how much it has helped - I wish I had started it years ago. I'd read about it and knew about the clinical trial using it. I asked my pulm doc about it; that's when I found out it was a supplement I could buy at health food stores. She wrote a script for 600 mg 3x day. I add 5 mg prednisone, which works for me.

I've had IPF for 12 years and would love to hear from others with IPF!
Thanks

Re: Ipf and nac

You are very lucky. I wish I would have known about this before my mom passed on 8/09/2010 from IPF. Keep spreading the word, it may save someone's life. The doctors just gave up on my mom. She was taking steriods and chemo meds along with oxygen. You are one of the very few and I wish you the best of luck.
