N-Acetylcysteine may help combat symptoms of addiction:

A study conducted in 2006 by Steven D. LaRowe et al titled 'Safety and Tolerability of N-Acetylcysteine in Cocaine-Dependent Individuals' was published in the 2006 American Journal of Addiction.

In it, a double-blind placebo-controlled crossover Phase I trial was conducted to assess the safety and tolerability of N-Acetylcysteine (NAC) in healthy, cocaine-dependent humans. Thirteen participants attended a three-day hospitalization in which they received placebo or NAC. Subjects were crossed over to receive the opposite medication condition during a second three-day hospitalization, which occurred the following week.

Across placebo and NAC conditions, only mild side effects were noted, and the number of subjects reporting side effects did not differ. There were trends for a greater reduction in withdrawal symptoms and craving within the NAC condition. These preliminary results suggest that NAC is well tolerated in healthy, cocaine-dependent individuals and may reduce cocaine-related withdrawal symptoms and craving. (Am J Addict 2006;15:105-110)

A study conducted in 2006 by Steven D. LaRowe et al titled 'Safety and Tolerability of N-Acetylcysteine in Cocaine-Dependent Individuals' was published in the 2006 American Journal of Addiction.

Panax ginseng may help the body deal with both mental and physical stress. A study conducted by Ellis et al titled 'Effects of Panax ginseng on quality of life' was published in The Annals of Pharmacotherapy, 2002.

Researchers found that Panax ginseng improved participant's quality of life after just four weeks of ginseng therapy, having the most impact on participant's mental health and social functioning skills.

Another study published in the April 2006 issue of the "American Journal of Epidemiology," scientists discovered that breast cancer patients who had used ginseng after been given their diagnosis found an increase in their quality of life scores. The most effect was seen upon their psychological and social well-being. It was also depicted that the longer ginseng was taken, the more the patients' quality of life improved.
