Double-Check Diluent Volume When Prepping IV Acetylcysteine
You'll see ads for the new acetylcysteine oral effervescent tablet Cetylev (SEE-tuh-lev) for acetaminophen overdose.
Acetylcysteine can protect the liver from toxic effects of acetaminophen. But a downside is its stomach-churning, rotten-egg smell.
Cetylev may taste better than the oral solution...since it has a lemon-mint flavor. But it costs more than three times as much.
