I took NAC for a while to counteract side effects of taking a lot of tylenol after breaking hip. Just recently read that it might help with respiratory problem so have begun taking again. Will report if any difference. (when taking. encore was not having COPD problem. )

Research on NAC is not conclusive, but there are studies that have shown that NAC does have positive effects on people with COPD. There are people who take it regularly and swear by it, and others who don't see much difference. It won't hurt you and it might help.
