Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 week ago):
thirst has clearly increased since starting on Nyquil. Cold symptoms are relieved, but now drinking easily triple liquid intake (water) than before.
From this study (3 months ago):
I have taken Nyquil before and never had this happen.
From this study (4 months ago):
Yesterday I took 2 DayQuil capsules at 6 pm and then the recommended dosage of NyQuil syrup at 11:00 pm prior to going to bed. This was my first and only usage of these products in over a year. It should also be mentioned that I finished 7 days of 500 mg of Augmentin BID yesterday morning. I have never had a reaction to antibiotics nor have I ever had a rash like this. The only medications I've had problems with are GA and codeine which led to nausea and vomiting.
