Do not mix drugs: Both contain acetaminopine and the combination will also augment the opioid concentration. Acetaminopine toxicity can result in liver damage and opioids can lead to nausea vomiting and constipation. Only mix drugs under your doctors care and prescription ...Read more

OTC cold med: Nyquil contains doxylamine, an antihistamine which is sedating. It will interact with Xanax (alprazolam) still in your system to increase drowsiness and may cause dizziness.

Is it ok to take nyquil while on aubra (oral contraceptive)?

Is it ok to take nyquil while on aubra (oral contraceptive)?

Very little interact: Interaction. They can be used together. Dextromethorphan, an ingredient in many cold medicines as a weak narcotic cough suppressant (weak enough that it is sold over the counter!) suppresses liver metabolism of drugs and INCREASES their levels. More drug. Not going to make it work less. But these effects are small even compared to the difference in drug concentration from people's sizes. ...Read more

I have the flu. Am taking tamaflu and motrin 800. Is it ok to take nyquil before bed as well??

I have the flu. Am taking tamaflu and motrin 800. Is it ok to take nyquil before bed as well??

Nyquil: Nyquil is usually a combination of tyelenol, anhistamine, dextromethorphan and possibly phenylephrine. Tyelenol and motrin serve largely the same function so there is no need to add combine motrin with nyquil. Otherwise, these medications are safe to take with oseltamavir or "Tamiflu" Be sure to get plenty of rest and wash your hands to prevent spread of the flu. ...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

Is it ok to take store brand NyQuil, when taking Tamiflu (oseltamivir)?

Is it ok to take store brand NyQuil, when taking Tamiflu (oseltamivir)?

TheFluWon'tFlyAway: Yes, it's OK. Just take as directed (well, a little more NyQuil won't kill you if you think you need it). Tamiflu (oseltamivir) works on the virus. The NyQuil works on the symptoms that the virus is causing. Neither is very good but not totally bogus. More important is rest, fluids, rest, proper nutrition, rest, more fluids, more rest, and *time* and not thinking you can just go about your business normally. ...Read more

I took the cough medication Hycodan (hydrocodone) at around 7pm. Its 10:30pm, would it be ok to take nyquil?

I took the cough medication Hycodan (hydrocodone) at around 7pm. Its 10:30pm, would it be ok to take nyquil?

Cough control: Hycodan (hydrocodone) can give excellent relief of cough. Unfortunately, if you are coughing again a lot after 3-4 hours, I would say the Hycodan (hydrocodone) levels are not sufficient to relieve the cough by itself. Hopefully, taking the NyQuil at that point will hopefully give you additive benefit. I would not typically take both meds together. If your cough is increasing/getting worse, see your doctor. ...Read more
