Can cough syrup with codeine cause insomnia?

User Avatar
It depends. For many people codeine tends to make them drowsy. For others, it can give "energy". Also, if you take more than the indicated dosage of codeine it may cause insomnia.

If you mean Listerine, the mouth wash. if you have no problem with alcohol, then yes you can. if you have a problem, they sell alcohol -- free NyQuil and i believe same with Listerine. note: Listerine taking just before driving, can cause you yo blow over the alcohol limit...

Does NyQuil affect the birth control pill?

User Avatar
There are no known drug interactions between Nyquil and the birth control pill. I've taken NyQuil and dayquil with velivet birth control and some times I do fine while other times I get a bit nauseous. When I eat a healthy I feel much better but I have vomited afterwards due to not eating well. So if it is absolutely necessary, you are more prone to getting sick if you do not it a good nutricious meal. However, different things work differently for different people so good luck.

No. It is a combination of an expectorant (Guaifenesin) and an cough-suppressant, (dextromethorphan). Dextromethorphan (DXM) actually possess CHOLINERGIC properties. If taken in excess, cholinergic toxidrome can be induced.

Asked in Medication and Drugs, Drug Interactions, Ibuprofen, Cough and Cold Medicine

Can you take Ibuprofen with NyQuil?

User Avatar
friendus from a website I found: Can I take ibuprofen and Nyquil at about 2 hours apart? There are no direct drug interactions between ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and Nyquil (any formula). You may take them together, but the ibuprofen with food or milk. Remember that some Nyquil have alcohol so they can make you drowsy. Can I take Nyquil with Motrin? Nyquil has many formulas, but there should be no problems taking Motrin (ibuprofen) with any of these. Follow the instructions on the packages and only take these as long as needed. If you have to use these for more than a few days, please contact your physician. I also recommend calling aprofessional

Can you take Dayquil with beer?

User Avatar
You should not drink alcohol when you are sick. Alcohol is a depressant, and it slows down your body's responses. You need all your energy to fight off this cold or flu, and you don't need to use up energy trying to come out of an alcohol stupor! In addition, Dayquil contains acetaminophen. This drug is known to cause liver damage. Alcohol also causes liver damages. Doctors recommend that you never use alcohol and acetaminophen together.
