Work + Stress = Infection
Sore Throat + Cough = Viral Cold

Vicks Nyquil – The cough syrup with alcohol – Man’s ultimate invention.
For you teetotalers who swear by Nyquil, face it, you are addicted to alcohol.

Watching three movies,drinking soup, lying on the couch, sniffling – therapeutic.

Telling your husband that he cannot touch his mac as it would be infected with your virus touch… – Plain Mean

    I wonder why Nyquil contains alcohol. Since the amt is too low to cause drowsiness. Its the Doxylamine Succinate, which is an antihistamine, that causes the drowsiness. I wonder if the alcohol soothes the throat or something: πŸ™‚

    Anyway get well soon and throw the Nyquil down the drain and drink cognac.

      Vicks Nyquil has antihistamine,acetaminophen swirled in corn syrup and 10% alcohol . I don’t know about other brands but Vicks has 10% and that is quite a bit, if you ask me. Take it for 5 nights and the 6th night you won’t be able to sleep peacefully and will wake up with a headache.

        The typical dosage is a tablespoon and thats about 20ml (and thats a lot of nyquil). 10% of that is 2ml- I really am not sure if that will cause drowsiness even in a baby πŸ™‚

          Actually a good comparison is wine- since the alcohol content of wine is also about 10-12%. Will a teetotaller get drowsy or hooked by having a tablespoon of wine every night?

          Now we need a willing guniea pig to try this on πŸ™‚

            Lets get Saumya. She claims she drinks alcohol after having a sip of cocktail.. πŸ™‚

            For your question, I think a baby would definitely get drowsy. There have been incidents where kids have been admitted to hospitals by ingesting hand sanitizers.

            And some people are also really sensitive. But, I think the antihistamine with alcohol is very potent.
