Advil with nyquil

Common Questions and Answers about Advil with nyquil


Avatar_f_tn Headaches suck, but usually with wd they only last about 5 days and advil helps a bunch. Keep posting, more will be along and hopefully have exp with nyquil.
Avatar_m_tn I am trying to figure out why a CVS Multi-Symptom Nighttime cold formula (generic NyQuil) is having a stimulant effect for me. First time using this medication. I took the regular recommended dose at 11pm. I was out by 11:30 and slept soundly. I woke up wired at 6:30am. This wired effect continued all day until around 7pm (20 hours). I recognized the feeling as the same hard to describe feeling I got when I took Ritalin as a very young boy, 35 years ago.
Avatar_n_tn hi there, when i got sick about 3 weeks ago i thought they where my fall allergeries where acting up but that was not the case i begin blowing out caylora cayon clored green snot and my left burst with infection with that and then i went in my doc and got antibiotics for 10 days and pain meds too. i know iam all better and i feel wonderfull.
Avatar_n_tn Thanks, i was wondering about the Tylonal PM's. good to know.
Avatar_f_tn I would be careful taking Advil PM as it has an antihistamine in it and might make RLS worse. I mistakenly took Nyquil with an antihistamine in it and had the shakes real bad. So be cautious..
Avatar_f_tn I recently have been sick with the influenza. I've taken Nyquil cold/flu and Advil alternating with Tylenol. The morning of 12/23 and 12/24 I woke up with green strobe lighting to the sides of my vision. This only lasted a short time but is worrisome to me. Can you help?
Avatar_f_tn I hope you are on the mend! Tylenol products ARE OK. Sudafed, Dimetap and Afrin are OK too. Avoid anything with alcohol in it such as Nyquil. Get plenty of sleep and take your vitamins! Good luck!
Avatar_f_tn 00 I take half of my prescribed phentermine .325 because I am currently on a weightloss program too. Around 10-11 I have to take another 10. 4:00 I take the other half of my phentermine and really the rest of the day depends on how I feel and the quantity of pills I have...The more I have the more I take and when the bottle gets low I start freaking out and try to refill it as soon as possible.
Avatar_m_tn I took 2 Advil fir back pain, then took NyQuil right after, forgetting that there is acetaminophen in the NyQuil. How serious is this?
Avatar_m_tn The spasm cough causes it all and when it goes away (usually 4 to 5 days) things are relatively normal although a normal cough stays with me for weeks after. I notice if I catch it early (which means I carry antibiotics with me all the time) it is not as nearly as bad. Doctors have diagnosed this as Asthma, chronic bronchitis, bronchial asthma etc etc. All different specialists seem to have a different prognosis and the recommended pills over the years have not really done any good.
Avatar_f_tn Talked to my pharmacist, she said advil and tylenol are ok. Nyquil needs to be spaced out from the clonazepam because of the antihistamines. She didn't seem too knowledgeable though. Does that sound right to you?
Avatar_f_tn My doctor told me any sinus meds are fine except for those which contain aspirin, Advil, motrin or ibuphrofen. With that being said dayquil is on the "okay" list... Does anyone know if nyquil is okay as well?
Avatar_n_tn I have been where you are. Get this stuff.... Hyland's Leg Cramps with Quinine Advil for aches Epsom salts to put in bath Immodium Nyquil And a supplement called Cal-Mag-Zinc You can get all that at Wal Mart. The hylands saved my life. It will work for the cramps. I promise. Also, drink gatorade and apple juice. Hot baths every time you feel achy or anxious. This stuff is worth the trip to the store. You can take it tonight and by bedtime you can feel better if you do all of it!
Avatar_f_tn You can try nasal sprays, they are locally acting with minimal systemic absorption and effects and they will help with your symptoms. Regards.
1711722_tn?1356491154 They said to stick to the Advil but if I needed cold meds, to check ingredients to make sure they weren't NSAIDS (in which case, not to take them the same day I take Advil) or Tylenol (as it could be hard on the liver -- however, doc said Tylenol for me is okay; but I'm taking Advil for other reasons, so sticking with that). The biggest thing that they are trying to avoid is stomach bleeding/GI issues, so it's important to compare ingredients.

Avatar_f_tn Hey great accomplishment!!! Just keep positive. No, Advil is NOT using. It does help especially with the muscle aches and pains. We all have them and had them before using other forms of pain meds. Its okay to take over the counter meds as long as you are not dependant on them. Such as Cold meds and others that have alcohol in them, just to get high on. But, if you feel achy... take a hot bath and 400mg of Advil. I'm not sure about the Dramamine.

1351870_tn?1277736021 but the B's will help you with the lack of energy and the magnessium+calcium with your muscles aches and RLS ( you can also take HYLANDS restful legs for those impossible nights with RLS )... go for walks when you can..... enjoy the sun too... and most of all, keep being positive that YOU CAN DO IT, of course, you can :) keep posting here too , it is the most therapeutical tool for us during those days finding support here. GOOD LUCK...
Avatar_f_tn A small amount is NOT going to help you with frustration. You know that. This is all need to find a way to deal with the cravings. In person support and therapy of some kind would help....Get some exercise! It will help you!!!
Avatar_n_tn Use the nyquil for petes are familiar with the addictive side of things aleady -Just keep an eye on stuff......and read the amino acid protocols in medhelps health pages...sounds like some theanine (like a valium...) and maybe some melatonin (for sleep, reset biological sleep clock) would be in order.....Sleep and anxiety will be some of the last things to finally let go when they do.........I always preferred the diphenhydramine myself - benadryl - that would be OTC ........
Avatar_n_tn The other thing is to keep up your intake of Vitamin C, Pepcid does nothing for colds, it is a stomach acid inhibitor and treats Acid Reflux, Gerd or heartburn, has nothing to do with Colds or Flu, You can take Advil for muscle aches due to colds, it is an anti-inflamatory for muscles.
1450847_tn?1284970574 I got 6 hours of sleep with the help of some advil pm and I did what gnarly suggested with the hot bath and letting myself cool off inmy bed. It felt very relaxing! So here we go. Start of day 7. Tryin to stay positive and strong!
720923_tn?1230546281 although i dont recommend taking the benedryl with the nyquil unless u read the back of the nyquil and it doesnt have any antihistamines in it. Nyquil tastes took the benedryl and ibuprophen...oh yea...pepto for the upset stomach...this is a quick fix for withdrawals but not a substitute for professional help..i've detoxed off of dilaudid, but i did what i suggested to you when i was dope sick to get me through....good luck on suboxone although i dont agree with it..
1049259_tn?1295092078 my incurance went through and he seen fluid build up along with nose inflamation but told me allergies! I am still having sinus issues now with a cough. I am going to my ENT dr wed so hopefully they give me some antibiotics and see if that clears the issue...
Avatar_f_tn I been taking over the counter pain meds and advil benadryl to get over my sickness once I took kids nyquil jst cause I was so much pain and needed sleep which I told the med assistant.
1671720_tn?1304126214 Dont advicate it for everyone but I did a dose of nyquil right before bed to help me sleep. There are alot of natural suppliments for helping with sleep like melatonin.So check out the Thomas recipe and alot of members here will give you alot of good ideas, I honestly wouldnt of made it this far without their support and ideas.Sometimes just knowing you arent alone in this helps alot.
Avatar_f_tn If I think about how I am not falling asleep as quickly (like on the ambien) then I don't fall asleep. Nyquil always did the trick for me along with a couple melatonin when I had no ambien. You could try that. Valerian Root I hear works good for others.
Avatar_m_tn I tried clonidine but it gave me a hangover headache. I use 1/2 of a advil pm because a whole one makes it harder to wake up with my son at 5am. His dad leaves for work at that time and he is always up with dad getting primetime. I also use hot bath at night the tea is a great idea too. Reading gets me tired too. Most of all though I need more time away from drugs I think to get back to normal sleeping.
