Is it safe to take Advil (ibuprofen) cold and sinus and then 3 hours later take NyQuil?

Yes: They are different meds with different effects. NyQuil is antihistamine + cough suppressant. Advil (ibuprofen) is NSAID anti-inflammatory + decongestant. You neglect to identify your symptoms. You might benefit from both, or you might do better with something else.

Sudafed: IS A STIMULANT and should not be taken before sleep!! NYQUIL has phenylephrine which is in the SAME family as sudafed (but is less stimulating thus may be used at hour of sleep) The TWO ARE ADDITIVE thus I would wait for 8 hours between doses!! Hope this helps! Dr Z

Is it okay to take gel nyquil capsules and children's liquid Advil (ibuprofen) together?
