My mom is taking hydrocodone for a broken ankle, can she take some nyquil? She hasn't taken any pills since 11 AM

1 doctor agrees

In brief: Be careful

both medications contain acetaminophen and the dextromethorphan in nyquil is a weak narcotic similar to hydrocodone.
If she is not taking another hydrocodone in the evening, a dose 30ml of nyquil is ok
