Nyquil Makes Me Really Sick To My Stomach What Do I Do Im Sick And Need Sleep
I've taken NyQuil for the last 2 nights, and both mornings I have woken up feeling very sick to my stomach. Could this be a side effect?
Possible: The only way to really tell would be to stop taking it and see if you are still experiencing the morning symptoms. NyQuil can cause upset stomach. If symptoms persist would suggest keeping of symptoms and seeking medical attention.
I've been sick with strep throat I am now better but I can't sleep at night so I took nyquil. But then I slept all day. Now I can't sleep what can I do?
Regular schedule: Good sleep hygiene is important. Part is going to sleep and waking at a consistent time, avoiding sleep medications or sedatives such as the antihistamines in otc meds. You might consider melatonin to help restore the sleep cycle which is normally used by the brain for this reason. If you still have problems see sleep specialist.See 2 more doctor answers
I took robitussin Dm and then NyQuil, 8 think around 2 hours later. I know this is ill-advised. Is it safe to fall asleep and let the medicine work or?
Robitussin: DM and Nyquil are not necessarily "bad" taken together AT NIGHT since SLEEPINESS may be a major issue (eg NO DRIVING!!!!) Hope this helps Dr Z
Can I take NyQuil with virtussin. I have a really bad cough and I need some relief to sleep. I've already taken the virtussin but it hasn't helped.
I've been drinking champagne (i had 1 whole bottle) but have a really bad cold and want to take nyquil before I sleep in a hour or two. Will I be ok?
No Nyquil 2nite: You really don't need more alcohol tonight and Nyquil has that and other things that don't do well when soused. After already drinking that much you should sleep OK even with a bad cold. Drink a lot of water now. It may be good for the cold and may help with the dehydrating effects of the booze. Don't expect to feel too hot in the AM.
Long term yes: You will develop a tolerance to the drugs in nyquil and you will need them to go to sleep.
Not the best choice: There are various formulations for this product, all with multiple ingredients you do not need if you are using as an occasional sleep aid. First make sure you are not taking anything, meds or drinks that affect sleep. Turn electronics off 30 min prior to bed. Options for single "item" sleep aids include melatonin, dramamine, (dimenhydrinate) valerian, and diphenhydramine, also known as Benadryl
I took cheratussin ac at 10 pm. It is now almost 3am and I can't sleep due to coughing. Is it safe to take NyQuil if it's only been 5 hrs?
Yes: The first med you took contained codeine and you almost certainly took too low a dose as evidenced by the fact that you are still coughing. More importantly you have to find out why you're coughing. See your doc today!
I am on cough syrup with codeine and it's not making my cough go away at all. So I can't sleep. Is there anything I can mix? NyQuil or melatonin??
I took 10 ml of robutusin dm an hour ago and two bennedryl. I am hacking my head off and want something to help me sleep. When can I take NyQuil safe?
Coughing: How old are you and how much do you weigh? It should be safe but will help to know this information first. Consult with any of our MDs to help you get better faster.
Can I take Nyquil with 2 mgs of Xanax (alprazolam) for sleep about 7 hours after taking my last 30 mg dose of Adderall IR? I am only prescribed Xanax (alprazolam) not Adderall.
I took some NyQuil because I could not get to sleep I took it at 6:20am and still have not gone to sleep. So I took a benadryl (diphenhydramine) at 7:00am. Was it a good idea to do that? If not what can I go to fix it?
Others: Both products utilize the sedating side effect from older generation antihistamines and it appears that you are not benefiting from this side effect. Yet this may impair your ability to operate machinery so be sure that your alertness is not affected during your awaking hours. There are many reasons for insomnia (stress, depression etc?). Talk to your doctor if this is a persistent issue..
After I swallow nyquil I felt burning scary feelin in stomach 1st it happened. I take only omepremazole 1 in the morning what happened I'm scared?
Well: Did you take it on an empty stomach? Sometimes taking even the mildest of drugs can create havoc on a stomach that already has issues, next time try having a little something to eat before you take any meds whether they require food or not. I hope you feel better!
I'm coming off a meth bender and haven't slept in a few days, will NyQuil help me sleep even though it expired 3 months or so ago? I have nothing else sleep inducing. Thanks.
Don't use any other: Substances, including street drugs, OTC meds, or alcohol after a meth bender (unless a medication is specifically prescribed to you by an MD who is aware of your meth use, and still advises taking the med). I know you're probably feeling awful right now, but adding even OTC medications to the mix only increases medical risk, & won't make you feel better ; (Think about treatment for substance use.
Nyquil addiction: People can become addicted to nyquil. If you are unable to stop on your own then discuss it with your primary care doctor and he/she can assist you.See 1 more doctor answer
