Don't Expect to Use Cetylev for Acetaminophen Overdose

You'll hear about the new acetylcysteine oral effervescent tablet, Cetylev (SEE-tuh-lev).

Think of Cetylev as a tastier version of an old med to treat acetaminophen overdose. Its lemon-mint flavor may be appealing to avoid the rotten egg smell of acetylcysteine oral solution.

But Cetylev is about $800 per course...compared to about $250 for the oral solution and $750 for IV acetylcysteine (Acetadote, etc).
