Mucomyst (I think its N-acetylcysteine or something close). Supposed to help you replenish your glutathione so that you can start reducing those toxic acetaminophen metabolites that your liver churns out

Acetylcysteine (Mucomyst) is correct, but rather than REPLENISHING glutathione, it actually ACTS LIKE glutathione and binds the toxic metabolites as they are produced. Ideally, treatment should begin before 8-10 hours have passed from the time of overdose.
