The Virtues of NyQuil

POST #    975

"Oh NyQuil, how you came and you put me to sleep-e, with my sick and painful throat-e." Yikes, that was bad. Sounded good when I sang it in my head. Since I'm sick with at least sniffling, coughing, and a stuffy head, I've been taking NyQuil LiquiCaps (or their generic equivalent) for the past two nights. I absolutely detest the taste of any liquid cough syrup, so I never enjoyed taking NyQuil or Robitussin as a child. But ever since they invented these capsules, I just love taking them. I probably take them once a year for a cold so I can "can get the rest you need to have a good morning."

Procter & Gamble, I have the following message for you:
I enjoy your product and how it decongests me so I can sleep. I don't necessarily like the groggy feeling I have in the morning, or the strange sensations in my legs for a few hours after getting up, or the strange dreams that I have, but I love the way your little green pills just put me right to sleep. I think there were times in college when I used your product to fall asleep. Those times were especially great because I could sleep late to avoid grogginess. - A fan, Tien Mao

p.s. - if this makes no sense, it's because I'm feeling the effects of the NyQuil.

You're under effects of dextromethorphan.

i suggest moving to sleeping pills. they will knock you out, get you a good night of sleep, and no weird dreams. i took a nyquil the other night and had the WORST night of sleep. i woke up like 3 times (and i usually sleep like a log).

thanks for the tip synbios. btw, your site is great.

jeannette, i'm not necessarily looking to get knocked out on a regular basis as i don't want to get addicted or anything. but the nyquil helps when i have a cold and can't sleep as easily.

i don't use sleeping pills very often. only when i'm sick, and i know i need the sleep, and i'm lying in bed for hours staring at the ceiling.

nyquil makes me feel weird, and doesn't give me good rest, so i think i'm gonna stay away from that stuff.

I had a bad thera-flu reaction...kept me up all night and felt like an anexity attack...not good

i kind of like the strange feelings that nyquil give me.

as far as thera-flu goes, someone recommended it, but it just tasted horrible. couldn't get it down.
