2. What do you need to know before you take the ACC Direct?

Children under 2 years of age should not use this medicine.

Warnings and precautions

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking the AOC Direct in the event of:
• skin changes. The occurrence of severe skin reactions, such as Stevens-Johnson syndrome and Lyle's syndrome, has been reported very rarely in association with the use of acetylcysteine. If new skin and mucosal changes occur, immediate medical attention should be sought and immediate use of acetylcysteine should be stopped;
• bronchial asthma;
• ulcers of the stomach or intestine (gastrointestinal ulcers) in the past or present;
• hypersensitivity to histamine. Longer duration of treatment should be avoided in such patients as ACE Direct affects the metabolism of histamine and may cause intolerance symptoms (eg headache, runny nose, pruritus);
• fructose intolerance, as this product contains sorbitol;
• phenylketonuria, as this product contains a source of phenylalanine.
• Inability to exert. The use of ACC Direct, especially at the beginning of treatment, may result in liquefaction and increased bronchial secretion. If you have difficulty swapping, your doctor should take appropriate measures.

ACC Direct should not be used in the event of hepatic or renal insufficiency to avoid additional intake of substances containing nitrogen.

Children and adolescents
Drugs with a mucolytic action may limit the patency of airways in children below 2 years due to the physiological characteristics of the airways in this age group and limited ability to excrete the secretion. Therefore, medicines with mucolytic activity should not be used in children under 2 years of age.

ACC Direct is not suitable for children and adolescents. Other suitable formulations are available.

Other Drugs and ACC Direct
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have recently taken or might take any other medicines. This applies especially to:

cough relievers (anti-cough agents). The use of ACC Direct in combination with cough relievers can lead to dangerous accumulation of secretion due to reduced cough reflex. Prior to administering such combination therapy, careful diagnosis is required. You should consult your doctor before starting treatment with this combination.
antibiotics. To avoid antibiotics being affected by the effect of acetylcysteine, they should be taken separately, at least 2 hours apart. This does not apply to medicines the active substance of cefixime or loracarbef. No interaction was observed for the two active substances, so they can be taken together with acetylcysteine.
activated carbon. Activated carbon may reduce the effect of acetylcysteine.
glyceryl trinitrate. Increased blood vessel enlargement and decreased platelet effect have been reported with concomitant use of glyceryl trinitrate and acetylcysteine.
Your doctor will check your blood pressure for a possible decrease, which may be serious and a sign of it being a headache.

Laboratory researches
Tell your doctor that you are taking ACT Direct if you have any of the following tests, as it may affect the results for:
• salicylates: medicines to relieve pain, inflammation or rheumatism;
• Ketone bodies in urine.

Pregnancy and breastfeeding
If you are pregnant or are breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or plan to become pregnant, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.

• Pregnancy
There is insufficient data on the use of acetylcysteine in pregnant women, so you should only use AUC Direct during pregnancy if your doctor thinks it is strictly necessary.

• Breastfeeding
There is no information on whether acetylcysteine falls into breast milk. Therefore, you should use the AUC Direct during the lactation period only if your doctor thinks it is strictly necessary.

Driving and using machines
There is no evidence that acetylcysteine may affect the ability to drive and use machines or have minor influence.
The ACC Direct contains sorbitol and aspartame
If you have been told by your doctor that you have an intolerance to some sugars, talk to your doctor before taking this medicine as it contains sorbitol.
The medicinal product contains a source of phenylalanine (aspartame). It can be harmful to people with phenylketonuria.

3. How to take ACC Direct?
Always take this medicine exactly as described in the package leaflet or as your doctor or pharmacist has told you. If you are not sure, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
The recommended dose is 1 sachet daily unless your doctor prescribes another dose.

Application method
The powder for oral administration from one sachet AOC Direct should be poured directly into the tongue. It stimulates the release of saliva and this facilitates its absorption.
Please note that the powder should not be chewed before ingestion.

Elderly patients and patients with fatigue
Patients with reduced cough reflex (elderly patients and patients with fatigue) should preferably take the powder in the morning.

Duration of use
• AUC Direct should not be taken more than 14 days without consulting a doctor.
• If your symptoms get worse or there is no improvement after 4-5 days, you should consult a doctor.

If you take more than the appropriate dose of AOC Direct
