How long after drinking alcohol can I take Nyquil?

Depends.

How much did you drink? Are you planning on driving or are you just going to bed? You should look on the Nyquil as another 50 proof source of alcohol and act appropriately.

Can you drink alcohol with nyquil?

Alcohol and NyQuil

Alcohol
NyQuil has alcohol so the effect would be additive. I probably would avoid using NyQuil when I was drinking. Be safe.

Can I drink alcohol while taking Nyquil?

Not a good idea

Immune_system
Nyquil itself contains about 20% alcohol, but more importantly excessive alcohol is bad for the immune system, and itself makes many cold symptoms (particularly nasal stuffiness) worse. Adding additional alcohol to nyquil increases the chance of intoxication, which aside from being illegal at your age, is dangerous, particularly behind the wheel of a car or anything similar.

Alcohol

Alcohol can interact with medication and cause either additive effect (toxicity) or lowers potency of medication. The only safe medicine that comes to mind is Placebo (sugar pill).
