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

I have been having a cough for the more than a month at first I thought it was just a regular cold I have tried Nyquil, and other over the counter medications nothing has helped I now get a blood taste when I cough sometimes with green mucus.

I have been having a cough for the more than a month at first I thought it was just a regular cold I have tried Nyquil, and other over the counter medications nothing has helped I now get a blood taste when I cough sometimes with green mucus.

Allergic cough??: You don't mention any fever or production of a lot of mucus or people nearby you (family, coworkers) being ill. That makes me think you might have a cough brought on by a post-nasal drip irritating the back of your throat and making you have a dry hacking, non-productive cough. If you have thickly feeling just a second or so before cough easily treated without antibiotics. (Benzonatate 200 q8h) ...Read more

If I take 30 mL of NyQuil the day before my 5 panel drug test, could it give a false negative on the test?

False neg for what?: Most people are not usually concerned about false negative results. The exception being the people who are prescribed a medication and rather than taking it, are selling it on the street.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.

Not generally: Most employers test for drugs of abuse, and nyquil, outside of a little alcohol, does not have any of the drugs they would be testing for (usually amphetamines, pcp, marijuana, opioids, benzodiazepines, cocaine). Also, they usually ask you to fill out paperwork on what your medications are, so you should just list the nyquil. ...Read more
