Answer: 
The antidote used in paracetamol poisoning is N-acetyl cysteine. It is a precursor for glutathione, promotes normal conjugation of paracetamol, and also supplies thiols functional groups which act as antioxidants. Its effect is more when administered within 12 hours of incidence. Reference:: http://www.patient.co.uk/doctor/Paracetamol-Poisoning.htm
