I am on an electronic ankle monitoring device after getting a DUI and I’ve taken NqQuil for sleep for as long as I can remember. I didn’t realize it had alcohol in it until it was too late and I’ve taken it the last 3 nights for sleep. I have to go tomorrow to get it downloaded and I’m scared it’s going to show up as if I’ve been drinking.
Can taking liquid NyQuil show up on a SCRAM bracelet as testing positive for alcohol?

Hey there, can you please say what happened when you went? I did the same thing the other night and am super worried now!
I really do not want to sound negative, but realistically speaking, most likely that will be the case. If it contains alcohol as ingredient and you ingested the medication it will show as if you had been drinking.
Explain to the authorities as you have done here, take the medication with you and show them. I do not know what else you can do besides getting a Dr.´s certificate stating you were prescribed NyQuil and currently under treatment for insomnia, but you do not have the time to get a Dr.´s certificate.
