Shakes After Taking Nyquil
I consume a casein protein shake before bed and now want to take NyQuil so I can sleep. Any problems taking both?
TheFluWon'tFlyAway: Yes, it's OK. Just take as directed (well, a little more NyQuil won't kill you if you think you need it). Tamiflu (oseltamivir) works on the virus. The NyQuil works on the symptoms that the virus is causing. Neither is very good but not totally bogus. More important is rest, fluids, rest, proper nutrition, rest, more fluids, more rest, and *time* and not thinking you can just go about your business normally. ...Read more

Yes: Nyquil contains multiple ingredient in each capsule including one called Doxylamine which is an anti-histamine type medication (similar class as Benadryl).
