Cardiovascular: very rarely - lowering blood pressure, tachycardia.
Allergic reactions: in isolated cases - bronchospasm (mainly in patients with bronchial hyperreactivity), skin rash, pruritus and urticaria.
Other: in isolated cases - the development of bleeding as a manifestation of hypersensitivity reactions.
In bronchial asthma and obstructive bronchitis, acetylcysteine should be administered with caution under the systematic control of bronchial patency.
With the development of adverse reactions, the patient should stop taking the drug and consult a doctor.

With simultaneous use of acetylcysteine and antitussives due to the suppression of the cough reflex, a dangerous stagnation of mucus can occur (use with caution).
With simultaneous use of acetylcysteine and Nitroglycerin, the vasodilator effect of nitroglycerin may be enhanced.
Synergism of acetylcysteine with bronchodilators is noted.
Acetylcysteine reduces the absorption of cephalosporins, penicillins and Tetracycline, so they should be taken orally no earlier than 2 hours after taking acetylcysteine.
Acetylcysteine is pharmaceutically incompatible with antibiotics (penicillins, cephalosporins, Erythromycin, tetracycline and amphotericin B) and proteolytic enzymes.
