Can I take NyQuil and Tylenol (acetaminophen) PM together? I am so sick.

Can I take NyQuil and Tylenol (acetaminophen) PM together? I am so sick.

I don't think so: I think most over the counter meds for colds are worse than useless. The side effects can be as bad as the symptoms. Coldeez is the only clinically proven treatment that shortens the course of a viral upper respiratory tract infection. Fluids, a Vick's nasal inhaler, blowing not sniffing are your best bet. Chloraseptic or cepastat can ease a sore throat and help with a tickle. See doc if no better ...Read more

I just took 2 extra strength Tylenol. Would it be okay to take a regular strength now? My migraine is KILLING me.

NO!!: If 2 extra strength don't work then 20 are not going to work and you will be poisoning your liver. Try a different class of medicine like Ibuprofen 600mg every 8 hours with the Tylenol.

I have a bad cold and my throat is killing me. I coughing every minute. I've been taking NyQuil for seven days now but it's not working. Any products?

Cepastat/Cepacol: Something that helps numb and soothe your throat like the above, gargling with warm salt water, putting a warm pack on your neck, hot tea with lemon can help you survive a cold.
If your throat is so sore that you cannot eat or drink properly, have very bad breath, see a swelling in the back of your throat, or have white/yellow spots on the back of your throat, or cough up stuff --> SEE DR!!! ...Read more

Is it true tylenol (acetaminophen) can reduce fear and. Anxiety in the brain?

Not likely.: Acetaminophen (which is the same thing as panadol and tylenol (acetaminophen) and paracetamol) does not have an anti-anxiety effect. However, it probably does have a placebo effect (which is legitimate) - if you think it helps your anxiety, it will. But there are far healthier ways to reduce fear and anxiety than biologically unhelpful medications. ...Read more
