I can get any relief from this cold... just wanted to know if there is any harm in taking Sudafed around 7:00 pm and then taking NYQuil around 11:00P.M.?

You are possibly over dosing a little on pseudoephedrine especially if you are taking the long acting Sudafed (120mg).
If you are taking 60mg Sudafed then its probably OK to take the Nyquil at 11pm.
Taking too much pseudoephedrine could make it difficult for you to sleep.
What about trying a decongestant nasal spray - they are very effective at relieving nasal congestion and would be safe to take with the Nyquil.
Have a chat with your pharmacist.
