Nyquil Dose 7 Year Old
No: No. NyQuil contains a combination of medicines that may be VERY dangerous in young kids! If your child is in pain, over-the-counter Tylenol (acetaminophen) can help (take only as directed!). If they have a cough, then studies have shown that HONEY actually works better (1-2 tsp as needed) than cough syrup! It thins secretions and loosens the cough. Only use it in kids older than 1 year! ...Read more

I took twice the dose of nyquil and now im nervous of it killing me I am 18 years old 150 pounds and have been sick for the past 3 days is this enough to kill me or am I just being irrational?
Should not..: If it was the recommended dose and you took it twice only as a one time event this should not be life threatening. However, if you took more than that and you are experiencing any symptoms you need to be seen immediately. You can also call poison control center for more directives on this: 1-800-222-1222. ...Read more

I am a thirteen year old girl with severe insomnia. Nyquil helps me sleep, but I know it is bad to rely on. What should I do to?
No stimulation: See your family doctor-at age 13 you should be able to sleep like a baby most nights. However, some doctors agree that teens tend to become 'night-owls and find it harder to fall asleep early. I agree the nyquil is bad to rely on -your body will become used to it. Try warm milk, a hot bath and relaxing reading an hour before bed. Don't stimulate your brain doing homework or talk on phone-relax. ...Read more
My 12 year old takes 3 mg melatonin. He's been stuffy, coughing and sneezing up a storm. Is it alright to give him the nyquil before bed?
Seen pediatrician?: I don't like Nyquil for kids...nor adults...but especially adolescents. Who made the diagnosis of insomnia in this young lad? And what is the cause of his insomnia? Stress? Big tonsils? Lady trouble? Who prescribed the melatonin and how was 3 mg. Chosen? Sleep study? Sounds like he has allergies. If you'd like to chat: www. Healthtap. Com/drsaghafi ...Read more
How many hours apart do I have to wait if 10 year old daughter took nyquil and now I want to give her ibuprofen?
My 3 year old daughter has a horrible cough and nausea. Can I give her cough syrup (children's nyquil) and gravol together?
No: The am academy of pediatrics doesn't recommend any cough products for young children as they haven't been shown effective and sometimes are harmful. Children's coughs may benefit from vaporizer, drinking fluids, and 1 tsp honey for those over 1 year. If cough persists, see dr: consider asthma, pneumonia, postnasal drainage cough, etc. I am not familiar with gravol, so no advice with it. ...Read more

I gave my 89 year old father NyQuil yesterday and today he is very confused. He has Parkinson's and mild dementia. Is this reversible?
Will get better: But, in the elderly with neurological diseases, they are very sensitive to medication side effects, and Nyquil can cause an anticholinergic reaction which makes this type of dementia temporarily worsen. Might contact your doctor to get a cholinesterase inhibitor such as Exelon (rivastigmine) patch, which would reverse much of this rapidly. ...Read more

I am currently a nanny. The almost 3 yr old, 32lbs, has a cold. Am I able to give her Children's Nyquil? If so what dose? Tried humidifier and honey
Not recommended: None of these products are recommended for any child under age 6 yr. They were commonly used decades ago, but were more a product that give you something to do than helpful. They usually contain antihistamines which actually thicken secretions making it harder to get up and cough our mucous secretions. Proper nutrition, rest and time will solve this problem. ...Read more
My son has a fever of 101.0F He took a 600 mg. Ibuprofen about 2 hours ago. Now, he needs flu symptom meds. Can he take 2 tbls of Nyquil? He is 17 years old.
Peroxide Humidifier: Do you have a cool mist humidifier? Fill it with one bottle of hydrogen peroxide, and two bottles of water. That will give you a 1% aerosolized mist of hydrogen peroxide. The peroxide kills the bugs on contact (virus or bacteria) as you breath in the mist, and breaks down into water and oxygen. Your son should feel better in a day or two. Helps protect the rest of the family, too. ...Read more
I took nyquil gel caps that expired a year ago. I did not realize this until after I had taken them. Will I be okay? I took two pills. I feel drowsy, but I'm sure this is to be expected.
Bad Gastritis has re triggered horrible insomnia- was using weed, occasional NyQuil for the last year, now I stopped them and trying to heal stomach. Cannot sleep, severe anxiety. Start weed again?
Sleep naturally: While medications are helpful for insomnia, they're best if used for the short term. What's best is to learn to sleep like a normal child again. Children tend to focus on play, curiosity, enjoying the moment. They don't tend to think much about sleep. Sleep just happens on its own usually.

Which of which?: Several preparations/combo preparations of nyquil or dayquil, all would contain similar ingredients with the addition or removal of one item, kindly specify exactly what preparation. You can call and ask the pharmacist in your local drug store. General advice : better not to overdose, read the labels carefully, good luck ...Read more
But why would one:
NyQuil Cough omits the acetaminophen but has the dextromethorphan and doxylamine succinate to cut down on your coughing.
DayQuil has acetaminophen like its more famous kin and the phenylephrine found in Severe, but keeps you from nodding off by having a lower level of dextromethorphan and no antihistamines.
various versions of both may have guafenesin which helps bring up mucous. ...Read more
Illness: Probably not the medication but the illness you took the medication for. ...Read more

1 dose=2 nyquil liquicaps? In warnings they said don't take more than 4 doses in 24 hrs, but dayquil or nyquil comes with 2 liquicaps in one. Confusing
Dose: If you are a small person you need to take one of the capsules. A larger person would take two ...Read more
