Very old thread revived by new member.

Even though I feel great, i'm still going to drink this medicine. Can't afford being sick on finals week. Anyways, I have the green Original Flavor for Cold/Flu relief. In the bottle it looks like regular liquid, like dimatap or Robitusssen. Well, Once you drink it, it is thick as hell and made me gag like 5 times...but I love the drwosy effect ;):D

I know exactly what you're describing!

Everytime I drink that stuff it makes me wanna barf right afterwards but gotta admit that stuff works. Other icky stuff seems to be pepto and that white antiacid stuff ewwww

Taste is second when it comes to the magical healing powers of Nyquil.

I'm just curious why you think drinking Nyquil is going to keep you healthy? Or are you just going for drowsy?

Well Acutally, I am just now getting over a flu/cold/fever what ever. I feel better today, but I took it again now just to make sure.

you are aware that cold/flu medicine doesn't actually heal you...it just suppresses the symptoms. only antibiotics and anti-viral medicines can &quot;heal&quot; you.

Oh ok, so you are still in the recovering stage. I think the main ingredient in Nyquil that makes you feel better is the alcohol.

sorry...geez. i hate it when my mom used to tell me to take my medicine, it'll make me better. so i went and did research on medicines primarily off-the-counter stuff...all this back when i was 10. i was a bored little kid back then. i still am...

Oh yeah, 10% is more than beer and wine, I guess that's the secret to feeling better :p

While were on the topic of medicine and stuff,
what's a good thing to take for a minor cough? It's not one of those nasty ones but it's been lingering for about two weeks now, nothing painful but I just cough once in a while

Actually Nyquil does help, by supressing the symptoms, it allows full rest, which is what helps your body more than anything to fend of and defeat viruses.

No forget the Red stuff... you must buy only &quot;Green Death&quot; Nyquil. Dennis Leary did a comedy routine about Nyquil and its god-awful taste. But that 10% alcohol makes the whole experience worthwhile :)

You think nyquil tastes bad? It taste like sugarry cherry goodness compared to Buckleys. Now that stuff taste bad, but I have to say that it works wonders.

nyquil might taste like crap, and make you wanna puke... but that stuff is pure liquid magic when it comes to flu... or insomnia ;)

I took it once, fell right asleep, and woke up sicker than I was before I took it. I don't know if it was the medicine or just some prob with congestion in my inner ear, but I was dizzy to the point of being sick for 3 days. At any rate, I haven't used it since, lol.

I remember the first time I tried nyquil. Dropped my ass into bed fast. Felt so good the next morning compared to the other days.

My friend drank too much one day when he was sick and we went down to seattle to walk around, and he was pretty &quot;stoned&quot; for the rest of the day.

If you want something that tastes bad go get yourself some powdered augmentin from your doctor and mix it with some water or whatever it was you have to mix it with... milk or water im not sure.. I just know I'm NEVER going to take that crap again free sample or not.
