The one thing about NyQuil:

It does let me get some needed sleep when I have a cold. It does give symptom relief from congestion and a runny nose and coughing.

While I can’t take much (the Dextromethorphan makes my meager intellect hide in a cave for a while… to the point that cannot operate complicated machinery safely….like forks or staplers), I do occasionally use NyQuil just before going to bed (Taking it in the kitchen means I wake up in the kitchen…likely on the floor) it has one terrible side effect……..

I wake up with a coating on my teeth that resembles engine sludge mixed with wallpaper paste and used cat litter…..possibly admixed with black powder ash residue and beach sand….and leftover (and cold) beef with broccoli sauce….
