A 51-year-old male asked:
Is it ok to use nyquil if you had a stroke 6 yrs ago?

Yes, short term: Yes, but no sleeping aide should be used long term. Nyquil has alcohol in it. The bigger issue is why you need sleeping help. Correct eating, exercise and wellness are all important to create a healthy and natural sleep.
