Can I Give My 4 Year Old Children Nyquil
No: No. NyQuil contains a combination of medicines that may be VERY dangerous in young kids! If your child is in pain, over-the-counter Tylenol (acetaminophen) can help (take only as directed!). If they have a cough, then studies have shown that HONEY actually works better (1-2 tsp as needed) than cough syrup! It thins secretions and loosens the cough. Only use it in kids older than 1 year! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 3 year old daughter has a horrible cough and nausea. Can I give her cough syrup (children's nyquil) and gravol together?
No: The am academy of pediatrics doesn't recommend any cough products for young children as they haven't been shown effective and sometimes are harmful. Children's coughs may benefit from vaporizer, drinking fluids, and 1 tsp honey for those over 1 year. If cough persists, see dr: consider asthma, pneumonia, postnasal drainage cough, etc. I am not familiar with gravol, so no advice with it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

My 9 year old weighs 93 lbs. Can I give her a half dose of NyQuil to receive her of her flu-like symptoms so she can sleep?
My 12 year old takes 3 mg melatonin. He's been stuffy, coughing and sneezing up a storm. Is it alright to give him the nyquil before bed?
Seen pediatrician?: I don't like Nyquil for kids...nor adults...but especially adolescents. Who made the diagnosis of insomnia in this young lad? And what is the cause of his insomnia? Stress? Big tonsils? Lady trouble? Who prescribed the melatonin and how was 3 mg. Chosen? Sleep study? Sounds like he has allergies. If you'd like to chat: www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi ...Read more

My 10 yr old (150 lbs) is sick and I just gave her 15ml of children's NyQuil. It's not seeming to help and she is not sleepy. Could I give her half of?
Half of what?: Your question stopped at "half of" so there is no way we can answer your question unless you start over and complete it. Your submissions are not linked, so each must have background and a relevant question. I rarely use any sleep meds in kids at that age, but 5 mg of OTC melatonin may help her if she needs it. ...Read more

I am currently a nanny. The almost 3 yr old, 32lbs, has a cold. Am I able to give her Children's Nyquil? If so what dose? Tried humidifier and honey
Not recommended: None of these products are recommended for any child under age 6 yr. They were commonly used decades ago, but were more a product that give you something to do than helpful. They usually contain antihistamines which actually thicken secretions making it harder to get up and cough our mucous secretions. Proper nutrition, rest and time will solve this problem. ...Read more

I am a thirteen year old girl with severe insomnia. Nyquil helps me sleep, but I know it is bad to rely on. What should I do to?
No stimulation: See your family doctor-at age 13 you should be able to sleep like a baby most nights. However, some doctors agree that teens tend to become 'night-owls and find it harder to fall asleep early. I agree the nyquil is bad to rely on -your body will become used to it. Try warm milk, a hot bath and relaxing reading an hour before bed. Don't stimulate your brain doing homework or talk on phone-relax. ...Read more
