It depends how big you are and how much you took. The major issue is the amount of Acetaminophen you ingested as this can cause severe liver toxicity and even death.

No, not much...: Nyquil or other cold medicines don't do much to help get rid of pneumonia. Cold medicines can lessen one's cough and runny nose, but the pneumonia still has to heal up by itself... With the help of antibiotics if it is a bacterial or mycoplasmal type of pneumonia. Mycoplasma are germs that are treated with medications like zithromax (similar to erythromycin). ...Read more

You can, but...: You may have a lot of trouble waking up in the morning. I assume you would take nyquil at night like it is intended, and often Lorazepam is taken at night for sleep. So you may want to take only 3/4 or 1/2 of your usual dose of Lorazepam if you need to take nyquil for a cold at night and don't overdo the nyquil either. ...Read more
Yes: All medications have the potential to interact with other medications. Some of these interactions are severe and some are minor. If you want to send me a list of medications I can review them for you and inform you of any interactions. ...Read more

No Dayquil: There have been no well-designed studies that prove otc cough and cold meds have any benefit at all, They do cause side effects, and can prolong your cold, make you feel worse than if you had not taken them, and increase your risk of secondary bacterial infections, esp.
