Nyquil Sore Throat
How many days can I safely take acetaminophen (in NyQuil) for my sore throat (my doc recommended it)? Not strep. It's the only way I can sleep.
Not quite right: question. Like so many things, tylenol (acetaminophen) is good except in overdose. The more reliable estimates are that tylenol (acetaminophen) overdoses (including intentional) produce serious harm rarely. Make sure you are NOT taking additional tylenol (acetaminophen) AT THE SAME TIME as nyquil (percocet, other cold meds, headache meds ALL have it among others). Don't overdose, no limit on how many times you can take it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Seasonal flu: It is very common viral infection. Usually the condition resolves on its own with home care. Drink water and get a good rest. If there is no improvement or sore throat is severe or lasts longer than another week, or you are getting joint pain; see your pcp for evaluation. Hope it helps. ...Read more

I just took nyquil for my cough and sore throat now it's been half hour and I've been coughing crazy is it safe to take promethazine codeine in liquid?
Cough syrup: I don't prescribe promethazine for cough and do not consider it safe. The recommendation is a teaspoon of honey, which has proven benefits in the pediatric literature. Try a mug of hot tea and then the honey to coat the throat for its demulcent properties. If coughing for several days and worse, a proper history and physical is in order to seek the cause of your cough. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have an ear ache, fever, sore throat with trouble swallowing, and stuffy nose. I've been taking motrin, nyquil, and vitamin c. Nothing really helps.
Cold: It can be a simple cold, but it sounds like it's time for an examination. There is a possibility of an ear infection, but these symptoms can also result from a simple virus infection. Don't be in a rush to get antibiotics if your doctor feels they're not warranted. Motrin, nyquil & vitamin c sound fine otherwise. Plenty of water, also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
