Is it safe to take Advil (ibuprofen) cold and sinus and then 3 hours later take NyQuil?

Yes: They are different meds with different effects. NyQuil is antihistamine + cough suppressant. Advil (ibuprofen) is NSAID anti-inflammatory + decongestant. You neglect to identify your symptoms. You might benefit from both, or you might do better with something else.

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

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!

I think I have gastroenteritis. Headache, achy, can't keep food down. I have Advil (ibuprofen) and Nyquil on hand. I read advil (ibuprofen) was a bad idea. What about Nyquil?

No: All the ingredients in nyquil are not what you need for a viral gastroenteritis. Drink plenty of fluids, get plenty of rest. Let it run its course and your body will fight the infection.
