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

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

No and yes: They're not going to help prevent a cold, but you can take dayquil during the day and nyquil at night if you want. Don't take them together, as they both have all the same ingredients, except the dayquil has a decongestant also for congestion (but not the nyquil, because decongestants can often keep you awake). ...Read more
