    DayQuil + Drinking

    So ive been sick the last few days, nothing serious - just your run of the mill coughing and green nastiness.

    Im feeling fairly good today athought I definatly notice that I am not fully recovered from the cold.

    Now the problem: There is a party I want to go to and I dont want to be coughing and sh*t while im there so I want to take DayQuil before I go. I read the back of the bottle, and the only mention is makes to alcohol is that if I drink more than 3 drinks a day then I should consult a doctor... no mention of drinking and taking the stuff.

    So I just wanted to know if any1 has any insight on the situation.

    I remember dimetapp and alcohol having an interesting effect. I wouldn't recommend that combination.
    Dayquil has different chemicals in it, but I dunno, I'm no pharmacist.

    DayQuil probably has ibuprofen in it...which is metabolized by the liver. They mention the "more than 3 drinks a day" on the DayQuil because if you're drinking that much, your liver is probably impaired and will have a hard time with the DayQuil.

    Personally, I'd not take the DayQuil. I'd take asprin, grab a handful of coughdrops and go have a nice drunk. It won't kill ya if you do take the DayQuil and have a few drinks, but IMO it's just smarter not to.

    Well ibuprofen (at least Motrin) plus alcohol can result in stomach bleeding. Not that I know whether there's ibuprofen in DayQuil...

    I wouldn't suggest it. DayQuil ****s me up pretty bad on its own, and it isn't a good **** up.

    I once mixed codeine and alcohol without thinking. I don't suggest that either.
