No: These OTC meds both contain a decongestant and acetaminophen. Taking both can be dangerous.
These OTC combination medications are not very effective
and will not make you get better 1 day sooner than taking nothing. Your best bet is to take Tylenol(acetaminophen) for pain or fever and a 12 hour nasal decongestant spray like Afrin for nasal congestion, follow the directions on label.

Yes: Both are for cold ,cough and congestion but nyquil is for night that make sedation to sleep so take theraflu in the morning and nyquil at night.
