I took Ethex 208, a prescription decongestant about four hours ago. It seems to be helping but I cannnot fall asleep. Is it safe to take Nyquil now? Will there be any drug interactions? I didnt find anything on the internet and the Ethex does not have acetominaphen in it but I just wanted to be sure. I feel horrible I have tried everything and I just want to sleep!
Guaivent (Ethex), is pseudoephedrine, a stimulant. Nyquil is 40% alcohol, which acts first as a stimulant, then as a depressant. I don't suggest mixing them, however, 4 hours difference may be enough time. You could ask your doctor, or the pharmacist at your local drugstore. Of course, since it's been ten hours since you asked, this is probably not very useful to you.
