An open-label dose-ranging study of NAC in the treatment of cocaine dependence in humans was conducted by Mardikian et al. [55]. Twenty-three treatment-seeking cocaine-dependent patients were assigned to either NAC 1200, 2400, or 3600 mg/day over a 4 week trial. Sixteen of the patients completed the trial, and the majority of these either stopped using cocaine or significantly reduced their intake by the end of the trial.
