In brief: Use as mucomist
Glutathione is end product of n-acetyl cysteine since glutathione gets degraded quickly you need the precursor. So for COPD use mucomist which is nac in liquid form smells like sewage so i prefer the capsule to avoid this.
John hopkins univ did a critical care seminar and they are using nac for acute kidney failure too.

In brief: No
Glutathione is not fda approved for the treatment of copd.
In human studies, it was reported to trigger an "asthma attack".
