I have a nasty cough and am wondering if anyone has taken nyquill while taking vicodin?


  • You might try calling your pharmacist. They could tell you what interaction you might expect.

  • has alcohol in it and a rather substantial amount , so I wouldn't take it with the vicoden. It may intensify the sedation, impairing your breathing. It also has an antihistamine which would futher add to the sedation effects.
    There are other medications for colds and flu that don't contain alcohol that you should use instead.

  • Does Nyquil not also have Tylenol in it? I'd be concerned about that as well.

    I think the suggestion about calling the pharmacist is a good one.
  • hi,
    I've taken Robentusin with loritab. but I would call the drug store and make sure it's ok. I hope you get to feeling better.
  • this chest cold is terrible. I did take some nyquill but waited till six hours had past since last dose. I made a dr appt for tomorrow.
    p.s. was told today not to mix them.
    thanks again everyone.

  • Isn't vicodene the same as hydrocodone??? I had a bad cough during the night but not during the day. I mentioned it to my PM doctor and he said the hydrodone was a cough suppresent as well and since I was taking it during the day it was controlling my cough as well as my pain. Whoulda thunk.. :)
  • my bottle says hydrocodone I hope it is the same as vicodin because that is what I have been calling it for a long time. ooops! Anyway it did not help with my cough at all. I was terribly congested.
  • Hydrocodone and Vicodin are the same med. It won't help your congestion but it should help with the cough.
  • I wouldn't advise it.
