If ACC akut® and cough-relieving medication (antitussives) are taken at the same time, a threatening accumulation of secretions can occur, resulting in breathing difficulties. Taking ACC akut® in combination with some antibiotics (e.g. tetracyclines, penicillins, cephalosporins, aminoglycosides), nitroglycerine and activated carbon alters their effect.
ACC akut® should not be taken if the patient is not sufficiently old (depending on the dosage) and in the case of known intolerance or hypersensitivity to the active substance acetylcysteine or other ingredients.
Depending on the dosage form and the manufacturing company, the price for 20 effervescent tablets, for example, is between 4€ and 11€. ACC akut® is available in pharmacies but can be sold without prescription.
