Her age is a critical point not mentioned in your query. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is always safe. Robitussin is likely fine, again, depending on her age. I would not use Nyquil or anything containing alcohol for a child.

You did not say how old she is.If she is over the age of 2.than she can take Robituscin for cough.I do not recommend Nyquil for children especially small children.It is alright to give Tylenol (acetaminophen) for fever in the appropriate dose based on body weight

If your daughter is less than 6 yrs old, cough medicine aren't recommended, as they have been shown to be not only ineffective, but may be harmful. Medicines like Nyquil May particularly harm children due to their unwanted effects on heart. Your daughter prob has a viral infection so get your PMD to see her if she doesn't improve with Tylenol (acetaminophen) in 4-5 days or sooner iher gen condition deteriorates.
