What happens if you take all this stuff together? I dunno either, but I'll let you know in a little while. [;)]

I wish I could remember the guy here that has a sig line that says something like:

"Don't take sleeping pills and a laxative before bedtime...trust me on this."

Good advice for you Ponyboy.

Sounds like someone's planning for one hell of a new years party!


Personally i'd avoid that combination. IF you absolutely feel you must do such a thing, i'd refrain from taking alcohol. Alcohol and drugs have this nasty way of making you fall asleep, and not waking up.

Actually, I'm just planning on not feeling like shit for the rest of the day. I didn't go to ETH's because I was supposed to work and I called in this morning because I didn't feel good. Isn't that a double negative?

Too late, but the good news is, I'm starting to feel a little better. I seriously doubt I drink anything tonight. I doubt I even leave the house. I'll probably just watch Band of Brothers all day and go to sleep hoping I feel better tomorrow.

New Years Smew Years....

No, I'm wide awake. I woke up this morning, called in to work and went back to bed. I knew last night I wouldn't feel good today.

I'm well rested, just sick. I feel a hell of a lot better now though, compared to when I got up this morning.

I'm starting to think I've found a pretty good combination.

Maximum Strength Thera-Flu:
Acetaminophen  1000 mg
Dextromethorphan  30 mg
Pseudoephedrine HCL  60 mg

DayQuil
Acetaminophen  250 mg
Dextromethorphan  10 mg
Pseudoephedrine HCL  30 mg

Pretty much the same thing but with different dosages.  Add the anti-histamine to either and you get the 'night time' versions.

No clue what Comtrex will do for you though.  I'm on Dayquil, and the night version of TheraFlu.  I should have gone the Benadryl route because it doesn't make me tired.

I hate colds.

I'm pretty sure that's what killed Elvis.

Seriously, though, if you do try this concoction, you're going to be nine kinds of dehydrated if you ever wake up. Drink LOTS of water before clicking out. Hopefully the bladder pressure will wake you up. If not, post pics of the golden bathtub.

I already took it all, at least a couple of hours ago. I feel much better now. I've still got the "I'm sick and lazy and don't want to do anything" felling, but I'm not coughing as much and I don't have snot running out of my nose. I'm taking a few shots of Chloroseptic every once in a while for the sore throat feeling.

I won't go to sleep until tonight.

Acetaminophen and alcohol are a no-no.

No booze for you!
Link Posted: 12/31/2002 5:14:07 PM EDT
Here's someting I tried [i]once[/i]:

Pour the theraflu powder on your tongue like a pack of lik-em-aid. (remember them?)

Chase with a Beam and Coke.

Lather.Rinse.Repeat.

Perhaps we should just call you Elvis from here on out?

I feel for you my brother. I've been living on Alka Seltzer Plus Flu for the last three days. Take it before bed at 10, wake up at 3am to pee, drink 16oz of water and get up at 6 for work. Repeat for three days. I woke up this morning feeling much better but have been so thirsty all day.

I think it's best to just pay the deductable and go to Doc in the Box and get some real meds for this so maybe it'll go away.

As Gloftoe pointed out, the Acetaminophen is a major worry with that cocktail.

Max. dose in a NORMAL individual is about 4 gm a day (4000 mg).  Not having your stuff handy, I'm betting every time you dose yourself up, you are getting about 700-1000mg of the stuff IF NOT MORE.  

If you are a drinker, have hepatitis, etc. that might have damaged your liver in the past, the maximum dose is much lower.

Not a fun thing to burn out your liver.

Well, I'm still alive. I didn't make it to see the crossover to the new year last night, but I don't feel quite as bad as I did yesterday morning. I only took my concoction once yesterday, so I don't think I overdosed on anything.

Elvis my ass...
