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.
From this study (2 years ago):
My son took 2 doses of nyquil yesterday 6 hours apart and woke up with a severe rash. He was diagnosed with Mononucleosis 7 days ago.....he's been very congested, with a sore throat....and the nyquil helped (he actually feels moderately better today...probably because he was able to sleep all night last night). I'm concerned that the nyquil may have caused the rash, on his chest, arms, and face.....his face may even be a little puffy. Should I take him in to the doctor? Should I avoid the nyquil?
