Shakes After Taking Nyquil
Drinking when ill: You know the warnings on these products are there for a reason. If you are coughing, congested, and ill, why would you drink alcohol? Why would you take in a product to make you more dehydrated to make it harder to clear your mucous and get better? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
You can drink water: Zzzquil contains diphenhydramine, the same antihistamine found in Benadryl and sominex. The combination of a drug that induces sleep & alcohol is called "a mickey finn". If your goal is loss of consciousness then you are well on your way. I strongly advise against mixing zzzquil or similar drugs with alcohol. ...Read more
Tylenol (acetaminophen) PM: Tylenol (acetaminophen) pm is tylenol (acetaminophen) plus benadryl. I do not suggest taking more than 50mg of Benadryl at one time so you can add up the dosages and see how much is in the tylenol (acetaminophen) pm plus the extra dose and if it is 50mg or less you don't have to wait, otherwise you should wait 6 hours if the tylenol (acetaminophen) pm has 50mg in it (which i don't think it does). ...Read more
Yes: I had to do a bit of research as nurofen and panadol are not common names of medications in the us. Nurofen is apparently a combination of Ibuprofen and phenylephrine and panadol is paracetamol (acetaminophen, in us parlance.) based up this information, i see no reason that these medications cannot be used in tandem. The meds do not significantly interact. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can i take chitosan capsules before taking alcohol or can I drink after taking chitosan capsules ?
Only newer kind: The new-generation antihistamine such as Claritin (loratadine) or Allegra possess virtually no sedating effect and i don't see any problem with it. I do caution however that a rare individual may still get drowsiness from them even though in studies the incidence is no higher than taking a sugar pill. Thus try it first before you combine alcohol with it. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not a good idea: Nyquil itself contains about 20% alcohol, but more importantly excessive alcohol is bad for the immune system, and itself makes many cold symptoms (particularly nasal stuffiness) worse. Adding additional alcohol to nyquil increases the chance of intoxication, which aside from being illegal at your age, is dangerous, particularly behind the wheel of a car or anything similar. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Caution....: Please keep in mind that taking medications that cause drowsiness, such as Theraflu, while taking Lexapro (escitalopram) can exacerbate the drowsiness and impair one's ability to execute functions such as driving or operating machinery. Recommending discussing with your doctor first and getting clearance. Hope this is helpful. All the best. ...Read more
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
Medications: Usually that is fine. Are you taking dayquil and nyquil for allergy? Have you tried any of the over the counter medicines such as zyrtec or or alegra?

Drinking lots of water is a good way to thin the mucus, esp with lemon and honey. see www.grossaninstit ...Read more

Can NyQuil make you forgetful ? feel out of it ? I've been taking NyQuil for a cough and lately I just feel so lost and out of it could this be why
Yes: Nyquil contains multiple ingredient in each capsule including one called Doxylamine which is an anti-histamine type medication (similar class as Benadryl). It is a first generation anti-histamine and therefore crosses the blood brain barrier and is known to cause sedation and "brain fog" after taking it and even after waking up in the morning. ...Read more
