In brief: Seizures

Seriously? Do you know someone doing this? This combination is horribly dangerous.

In brief: Not that i know of

Haven't researched whether there have been any case reports of this, but have never heard of this happening.
Sleep paralysis is usually associated with underlying sleep disorders like narcolepsy. The combination of red bull (high levels of caffeine) together with dayquil, which is basically dextromethorphan and decongestants, is potentially dangerous and should be avoided.
