I have a bad flu right now. Can I take Theraflu during the day and Nyquil at night?

Yes: As long as you follow recommendations on the box and don't combine the meds. So if each medicine allowed every 6 hours, you can take theraflu 3 times and NyQuil one time. Do not double Tylenol (acetaminophen) which almost always a component of this pills, it can be toxic. ...Read more

It ok to take theraflu and nyquil at the same time?

It ok to take theraflu and nyquil at the same time?

No: These OTC meds both contain a decongestant and acetaminophen. Taking both can be dangerous.

These OTC combination medications are not very effective and will not make you get better 1 day sooner than taking nothing. Your best bet is to take Tylenol(acetaminophen) for pain or fever and a 12-hour nasal decongestant spray like Afrin for nasal congestion, follow the directions on label. ...Read more

I'm on claritin (loratadine) D and flonase, but getting little relief/sleep. Is it okay to also take either theraflu nightime sever cold and cough or nyquil coldflu?

Yes, but: Only take either, the theraflu or the nyquil, not both, and if you do, please drop the evening/night dose of the claritin (loratadine) d, till you see your doctor, read the labels carefully, might cause sedation, so don't drive or operate machinery, good luck ...Read more

If I don't take my trazodone can I take NyQuil nighttime cold and flu medicine?

If I don't take my trazodone can I take NyQuil nighttime cold and flu medicine?

No: Consult your prescriber, but I believe Trazodone hangs around a while in your system & may interact w/some OTC meds. Besides, I don't recommend the combination OTC cold meds bc they may contain unnecessary, & even dangerous, ingredients. For thick mucous, use plain guafenisin. For allergies, use otc certrizine. For runny nose that clear mucous, if no HTN, phenylephrine or sudafed ...Read more

My husband jut drink a theraflu tea and 1 hour later he tok a nyquil what can happen to him?

Hopefully nothing: just skip the next dose of either, Theraflu and nyquil have different combo formulations and can contain the same ingredients in each, so you may have a double effect or increased chances of side effects as sedation / CNS depression, read the labels carefully, wish you both wellness ...Read more

Can I take a nighttime cough medicine like nyquil if I take trazadone each night?

Can I take a nighttime cough medicine like nyquil if I take trazadone each night?

No: Better avoid the combination, nighttime cough medicines contain antihistamines which interact with trazodone, also other ingredients of cough meds like dextromethorphan would interact with trazodone as well, all would lead to CNS depression, call or see your doctor if your cough symptoms are really bothersome and you can't stop the trazodone, good luck ...Read more

Not generally: Most employers test for drugs of abuse, and nyquil, outside of a little alcohol, does not have any of the drugs they would be testing for (usually amphetamines, pcp, marijuana, opioids, benzodiazepines, cocaine). Also, they usually ask you to fill out paperwork on what your medications are, so you should just list the nyquil. ...Read more

Can I take a sleep medicine with famotidine such as nighttime Nyquil or Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm?

Yes: Usually, there is no interaction with famotidine and nyquil or tylenol (acetaminophen) PM. Some recommend avoiding the combination with a different pain medication such as enteric-coated naproxen as the combination may result in premature dissolution of enteric coating, potentially increasing risk of stomach ulcers sometimes associated with naproxen. ...Read more

Can you take claritan during the day and nyquil at night?

Can you take claritan during the day and nyquil at night?

Claritin (loratadine): Claritin (loratadine) is a non/sedating antihistamine, which is a longer acting drug. The usual dosing in only one a day. Nyquil has antihistamine in it, too, but it's an older one and will make most people drowsy. By taking Claritin (loratadine) in the morning and nyquil at night, you are getting more antihistamine than is recommended. Better to use a shooter acting non-sedating antihistamine like allegra. ...Read more

Can I take nyquil at night when I'm also taking Claritin (loratadine) and atarax?

Can I take nyquil at night when I'm also taking Claritin (loratadine) and atarax?

Claritin (loratadine) Not Atarax: You may combine nyquil & claritin (loratadine). The latter is a non-sedating antihistamine. Nyquil contains a sedating antihistamine & Atarax is another. Liquid formulations of nyquil contain a lot of alcohol. So if a drunken stupor is your goal you'll achieve it with nyquil & atarax. There are better & safer ways to treat your allergies. Skin testing is more cost-effective than immunocap & equally accurate. ...Read more

Can NyQuil/DayQuil be taken if you take Losartan 100mg? If not what recommendations for cold/flu day and night medicines do you have? Thank you!

Can NyQuil/DayQuil be taken if you take Losartan 100mg? If not what recommendations for cold/flu day and night medicines do you have?

Thank you!

Mixing medications: Either of them should be fine. The dayquil contains a mild decongestant — phenylephrine which could potentially raise your blood pressure. One version of the nyquil contains pseudoephedrine which should be avoided in people with high blood pressure but in the US that would be behind the counter. I would say take whatever to help your symptoms and only for as long as you have symptoms. ...Read more

I was prescribed gabapentin 300mg 3x a day and 37.5 Effexor (venlafaxine) in the morning. Can I take Nyquil and/or Benadryl at night?

Med combo: You need to be careful about being overly sedated (drowsy, unable to drive or operate heavy machinery etc)... Especially with a neurontin / Benadryl (diphenhydramine) combo... Make sure you're prescribing doc is informed about your addition of Benadryl (diphenhydramine) / NyQuil BEFORE you implement this change! ...Read more
