In brief: N-acetyl cysteine

N-acetyl cysteine is a unique medication that has been used for mucus thinning in a person afflicted with pneumonia or bronchitis.
Inhaled in to one's bronchi, it breaks up mucus. NAC is also used as an anti-oxidant and as a kidney protecting intervention against radiocontrast dye. It is available from pharmacists with prescription and in hospitals.
