     Of course it is Saturday and impossible to reach my GI doctor because this is NOT an emergency, but I have a horrible cold.  Was wondering if it would be safe to take Nyquil?

Update 11/03/08...finally in remission!!  Hope I don't jinx myself.  Off the prednisone since 11/01/08...now see if I can stay off for longer than two weeks.  Other meds: 6MP (75 mgm), colazal (6 per day), Benicar and Toprol (high blood pressure meds), Probiotic (2 per day), fish oil capsule and multi-vitamin and calcium with vitamin D.

Aww, I'm so sorry you have a cold! They are the worst! blech! Yes, I take Nyquil frequently when I have a cold. I always feel better after a good nights sleep so if my nose is really stuffy, I use Nyquil in addition to Vicks 4-way nasal spray to clear me up. But I don't use the Vicks during the day because it can have a rebound effect. I hope you feel better.
