Any medication for moderate Microalbuminuria other than tight control of HTN. DM with diet exercise like acetylcysteine Taurine?

Possibly: There appears to be some data supporting the use of acetylcysteine taurine for this purpose. You are already taking the usually recommended medication to prevent kidney damage in diabetes, i.e. telmisartan, an angiotensin receptor blocker. These drugs, along with ACE inhibitors, are the standard of care. Notable side effects of acetylcysteine are reported including rash. Review with your doc. ...Read more

The harm comes in the way your body "deals" with sugar and long term effects of Insulin over production and consumption. Psychological addiction is another harmful side effect. Read up on Dopamine.

Why is taurine in energy drinks?

Because expected?: Virtually all "energy drinks" have taurine but I know of no good evidence that taurine increases energy. Taurine is an Amino Acid that is important for heart health & muscles & acts as a inhibitory neurotransmitter, meaning it actually has a calming effect on the nervous system, the opposite of what you might want in an energy drink. But because it is widely used in these drinks people now expect it! ...Read more

Taurine has shown to be energizing for me bc when I took it at night I couldn't sleep the whole night. If I take in afternoon will I sleep at night?

Taurine has shown to be energizing for me bc when I took it at night I couldn't sleep the whole night. If I take in afternoon will I sleep at night?

Most likely: That is an unusual response. Taurine is calming to most, in fact it is included in many natural sleep aids. If you take it in the afternoon any stimulating effect will likely dissipate by bedtime, but the only way you will know for sure is to try it. To be extra safe try it in the early afternoon.

Would it be safe to exchange xyreem (narcolepsy, catiplesy)with phosphativylserine, rhodiola, taurine, and glutamate?

Why?: I presume you have a well documented sleep disorder, and the xyrem is present to control your cataplexy. You do not say if it is effective, and I know it is a pain to use this stuff. But who recommended all these otc approaches for your problems? There is absolutely no evidence that this melange of supplements will control your narcolepsy. Please talk to your physician.
