the last two days i've taken dayquil i start to get drousy in 20-30 minutes and generally fall asleep in 45, i feel paralyzed and cannot resist falling asleep.
Drako928, Dayquil has aceteminophen, pseudoephedrine, & dextromethorphan in it. Some people get side effects from the dextromethorphan.
Nervous system side effects of dextromethorphan have included drowsiness and dizziness. Other side effects such as excitation, mental confusion, and opioid like respiratory depression have been rare and occurred at higher dosages. In some cases of abuse, patients experienced euphoria, hyperactivity, mania, and auditory and visual hallucinations.
Hope this helps you. Sounds like this is what has happened with you being senative to it. If it were an allergic reaction you would have trouble breathing, or swelling or itching with a rash...
This same thing happens to me! I was just sick last week and I woke up, took it early in the morning, and then I ended up falling asleep again and a few times I would wake up and not have the energy to get up so I would fall back asleep and I literally ended up sleeping for like three days straight.
