Don't Expect Cetylev to Be On Your Formulary

The new acetylcysteine oral effervescent tablet, Cetylev (SEE-tuh-lev), will compete for a spot on your pharmacy shelves.

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).
