Nyquil: Nyquil is usually a combination of tyelenol, anhistamine, dextromethorphan and possibly phenylephrine. Tyelenol and motrin serve largely the same function so there is no need to add combine motrin with nyquil. Otherwise, these medications are safe to take with oseltamavir or "Tamiflu" Be sure to get plenty of rest and wash your hands to prevent spread of the flu.

Yes: Nyquil has Tylenol (acetaminophen). Its safe to combine Tylenol (acetaminophen) and Advil, since its different class medications.
