My friend is taking 500mg of NAC tablets 9 times

My friend is taking 500mg of NAC tablets 9 times a day for a month now. She thinks that will lighten her skin color (this has been circulating around in India). Now she is turning yellow. So she stopped. What are the long term effects of what she has done to her body ?

I have been given 500mg of metformin to take once a day to start for insulin resistance. Currently this is the third day and I have a horribly upset GI tract, and my arms/legs feel like lead weights with extreme fatigue. I have heard an alternative is NAC, that does not have these same sides. Is this a valid alternative? Link to NAC: WWW.WWWW.WW

Hello Dr.?: I am a 23 YO male with no current illness/disease and I m curious about the possible problems that could occur from my daily supplemental intake. I read an article about NAC and it s possible interference with normal oxygen regulation. Daily I currently take: 1 NAC pill (600mg from vitamin shoppe), 1 Men s multivitamin (Target brand), 1 ester C (to balance the NAC + additional Vit. C). I haven t experienced any side effects and I ve been on this regime for over 4 months. Thank you in advance for your input!
