I have been struggling with skin picking for about eight years and have had little success in treating it until recently. I have been on a few different medications one of which is zoloft. The zoloft has made a tremendous difference in my depression and made some dent in my anxiety but nothing in the skin picking. My doctor started me on Klonopin three times daily and that seems to help a lot. The only problem is that I am very against taking medications and it is hard to force myself to take it everyday. Recently he attended one of Dr. Jenike’s lectures in this area and mention was made about NAC. So anyone who is still suffering maybe look into that? I am still suffering from skin picking and its side effects so trying the NAC is my next step. If anyone has already tried it please let me know if you have had any success.
Also can someone elaborate on NAC and what it does/how it works?
