When feeling ill and being a bachelor with no care about “drinking from the carton”, do NOT just guess the dose of Nyquil you have dumped in your mouth.
They put the measuring cup there for a reason. Use it.
The affects from last night, prompted me to use the measuring cup for tonight and the feel of one measured dose in my mouth tells me that last night I was at about 2.5-3 doses.

1. You cannot, under any circumstances, stay awake for more than an hour after taking 3 doses of Nyquil. After about 30 minutes, you start to act as though you have had about 15 doses of Tequila, and have to crawl to the bed.

2. Any TV show is funny after 3 doses of Nyquil, especially while lying on the floor looking at the TV upside down, which somehow I wound up doing.

3. It is completely undetermined whether or not 3 doses of Nyquil really takes care of your symptoms, or you are just so doped up high that you simply don’t care if bits of lung are coming up when you clear your throat.

I took a carefully measured 1oz dose about 15 minutes ago, and get to am sleepy starting I.

I had a friend in high school (early 70's) that use to drink that stuff to get drunk/high. It was somewhat funny, he was an exchange student from Germany, and he would start cussing and going off in German after a few doses.

I took a huge dose of aceteminophen and called the poison center - they said the max dose per day is 4 grams...good thing...I only took 2g, although I am sure it is still not all that good for me to do that...

Here's a tip:

DO NOT, DO NOT, DO NOT, take prescription strength Ibuprofen(like a dentist gives you after a root canal) and drink pop afterwards. You'll feel weird.

Done and done. Really.

I have drank at least a gallon of water today, and about a half gallon of OJ. 2 cups of herbal tea. And topped off with .25 gallons of milk mixed in a blender with 3 banannas.
Yesterday, before the Nyquil thing, I drank about a gallon of water and a gallon of OJ.

I have been pissing every 10 minutes for the last 12 hours.

IF memory serves, Nyquil is mostly alcohol - something like 80 proof. I'm suprised you're not hung over.

Acetaminophen (brand name Tylenol) will simply destroy your liver if you take an overdose.
Once it enters the blood stream there is no antidote.
After about 3-4 weeks you turn yellow and die.
Liver transplant is the only option.

I watched a teenage girl take an overdose a few years ago. She called 911 the next morning and spent the next month in the hospital finishing the undertaking. It was a 'cry for help', but there is no help for what she did.

There have been a number of warnings about acetaminophen and how common it has become in many OTC drugs. It is not hard to go over the safe limit taking even a couple of different meds.

Well...likely because Nyquil used to hav codine in it! We used to drink the whole bottle to get f'ed up....back in the days when I used to get f'ed up.

Back when they used codine in it you could get pretty messed up on the stuff!

With flu is when I'm at my achiest;
The fever and chills make me shakiest.
If NyQuil I take,
On the floor I will wake,
For NyQuil is what makes me flakiest.

For me, NyQuil® is the Oh-My-God-What-Am-I-Doing-With-My-Head-On-The-Bathroom-Floor medicine.

No shit.. NyQuil will kick the shit out of you hands down.

DayQuil on the other hand christ, makes you feel cracked out then you get dehydrated and crash then you need to get more to keep moving.

done your liver any good. Who knows what might pop up a few years from now.....

Several years back I was traveling on business and got sick. The last day of the trip I decided to get some cough syrup to help with my nagging cough. Bought a bottle of Delsium (sp?) at the corner market on the way to the office. The doseage was one teaspoon, I think. Not having a teaspoon in the briefcase I just took what I thought was an appropiate swig. BIG mistake. For the next 8 hours I was walking on air thinking more about why it felt like I had a hat on than work. Lesson learned.

brothers friend died doing that in high school. i guess you cant drink 2 bottles in one night.

the funny thing with the acetaminophen is your body will sorta build a tolerance to it. thats why the people hooked on percocet and vicodin are still kickin.

i like the nyquil get caps if i am sick.
if i want to sleep i have ambien, those tiny pills work wicked fast. if i take one i better be near my bed or end up sleeping where i land.

they both contain the same active ingredient, Dextromethorphan

if you must absolutely fill some need to go robotripping, please find a product that contains Dextromethorphan only and no Acetaminophen or Guaifenesin so you don't kill yourself in the process....
