There are no known drug interactions between Nyquil and the birth control pill.
I've taken NyQuil and dayquil with velivet birth control and some times I do fine while other times I get a bit nauseous.

Can you take Dayquil with beer?

You should not drink alcohol when you are sick. Alcohol is a depressant, and it slows down your body's responses. You need all your energy to fight off this cold or flu, and you don't need to use up energy trying to come out of an alcohol stupor!

In addition, Dayquil contains acetaminophen. This drug is known to cause liver damage. Alcohol also causes liver damages. Doctors recommend that you never use alcohol and acetaminophen together.

Can you take Ibuprofen with NyQuil?

Answers from a website I found: Can I take ibuprofen and Nyquil at about 2 hours apart? There are no direct drug interactions between ibuprofen (Motrin, Advil) and Nyquil (any formula). You may take them together, but the ibuprofen with food or milk. Remember that some Nyquil have alcohol so they can make you drowsy. Can I take Nyquil with Motrin? Nyquil has many formulas, but there should be no problems taking Motrin (ibuprofen) with any of these. Follow the instructions on the packages and only take these as long as needed. If you have to use these for more than a few days, please contact your physician. I also recommend calling aprofessional
