Answer:

Although N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is used medically to treat acetaminophen (Tylenol) overdose, no studies in people have evaluated the effects of taking NAC with acetaminophen to prevent acetaminophen-related liver damage. The only studies like this to-date have been in animals. For more details about this and other uses of NAC, see the "What It Does" section of the NAC Supplements Review >>

Acetaminophen depletes glutathione in the liver, NAC is a building block of glutathione, which is a major antioxidant of the body.
I always recommend patients take NAC if they take acetaminophen ,or a product containing it , with any regularity. One such example being pain medications like Tylenol, Fiorecet, hydrocodone etc.
