Nyquil Makes Me Really Sick To My Stomach What Do I Do Im Sick And Need Sleep

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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?

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.
Not recommended: Nyquil is risky w/ both the other drugs. Risks high BP w/ Adderall and can cause confusion, dizziness, etc w/ Xanax (alprazolam). W/o a Rx, you ought not take Adderall anyway. These are serious drugs, be careful. Your body is a valuable possession, take care of it! Be well! ...Read more
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. . ...Read more
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! ...Read more
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.
Dont 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, & wont make you feel better ;(Think about treatment for substance use. ...Read more

I took my kids to the doctor and gave them a sterdio med but I forgot and gave them NyQuil by accident cause she could sleep?
Take your meds!: The best of us forget things, but if your doctor wants your child to take a medicine, you should give it. Over the counter medicines are generally OK for kids over 6, but your have to pay attention to the dosing so that it doesn't harm them, and definitely don't combine 2 different medicines. NyQuil does help kids sleep, but if your child has asthma, watch their breathing pattern closely. ...Read more
