    anything that makes you drowsy is a no no. my doctor told me this when i was sic. nyquil has alcohol in it. that is what makes you sleepy. do not take them. dont take ANYTHING unless you pass it by your doctor first. are oyu sick or something? if you are what are you sick with?

  • no!!!! I took Robitussun when I was pregnant because I had bronchial pnemonia but even with Tussun, there were certain ones I couldnt take, and that was 3 years ago so that may of changed, call your doc first!

  • oh well try a humidifier to help with your throat if you dont have one of those, run your shower as hot as it can get and sit in there with the door shut the steam will help with your itchy dry throat..
