In brief: Charcoal NAC psych
First, assess the likelihood of significant overdose.
Determine if acute or chronic. If a significant acute od and within first four hours - administer activated charcoal then begin n acetylcysteine. Consider consultation with liver / toxicologist if severe or multi organ failure. Consult psychiatry if intentional od.
