I was taking Hydrocodone cough syrup for the flu. However I'm coughing my brains out 6 hours later. Can I just take Nyquil now and discontinur other?

In brief: OTC Meds

Contain Dextromethorphan (DM) which is not as effective as hydrocodone; but.
If the OTC gives you longer lasting relief then switch.
