Not recommended: You should avoid the use of alcohol while being treated with NyQuil due to potential dizziness, drowsiness and impairment in thinking.

Don't do it: Nyquil and alcohol should no be taken together as both will have CNS depressing effects. Furthermore if Nyquil was taken because of feeling sick then it is better to wait for recovery before imbibing alcohol.
