Can I take 2 advils (ibuprofen) pm and 2 nyquils at the same time? Is that safe?

Can I take 2 advils (ibuprofen) pm and 2 nyquils at the same time? Is that safe?

Unnecessary risk.: Nyquil (acetaminophen, dextromethorphan, doxylamine, pseudoephedrine); advil pm (diphenhydramine, ibuprofen). Diphenhydramine together with doxylamine may increase drowsiness, blurred vision, dry mouth, flushing, decreased sweating, difficulty urinating, abdominal cramping, constipation, rapid heart beats, confusion, and memory problems.

If I take dayquil at 3pm and it's 8pm now and I took two advils, (ibuprofen) should I take nyquil later tonight?

If I take dayquil at 3pm and it's 8pm now and I took two advils, (ibuprofen) should I take nyquil later tonight?

Don't take either: Both Dayquil and Nyquil are loaded with acetaminophen, a highly toxic drug. I believe it should be taken off the market. 2, 000 mg is a toxic dose--but no dose is good for you. If you do take those meds, take 2400 mg of N-Acetylcysteine each day, to regenerate your glutathione. ...Read more

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

Try to space them: Out 4-6 hours apart. Nyquil has tylenol (acetaminophen) which is a pain killer and combining with advil would be a double whammy. If u already took both at the same time, it won't harm u. Take care! ...Read more

NyQuil has: Acetaminophen, doxylamine, dextromethonphan and phenylephrine. It’s fine to take additional ibuprofen but not PM. It’s not a good idea to mix diphenhydramine with doxylamine. ...Read more

Hi. I have a sinus infection. I took 400mg Advil (ibuprofen) and a sudafed 5.5 hours ago and now want to go to sleep. Can I take NyQuil now?

Hi. I have a sinus infection. I took 400mg Advil (ibuprofen) and a sudafed 5.5 hours ago and now want to go to sleep. Can I take NyQuil now?

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!
