Don’t be stupid – you’ll damage your liver long before you get drunk on Nyquil.

What Is Nyquil Abuse?
Taking more than the recommended dose of Nyquil, with the intention of getting high or drunk, is considered Nyquil abuse. Of all the over-the-counter painkillers that people abuse, Nyquil is one of the most stupid.

It’s true that Nyquil contains alcohol, but most people abuse it for the DXM (Dextromethorphan) content rather than the alcohol content. DXM is a cough suppressant that gives you a buzz if you take enough of it.

Back in the day, Nyquil was pretty strong, but nowadays it's only about as strong as cheap wine. Think about how much wine you'd need to get drunk, and then think about drinking that amount of Nyquil. Does that really sound like a good idea to you?

Why Is Nyquil Abuse A Bad Idea?
It’s called “abuse” for a reason. Nyquil contains high amounts of APAP, which is the active ingredient in painkillers like paracetamol and ibuprofen. It’s the reason that painkiller overdose can be lethal – APAP does a hell of a lot of damage to your liver if you take too much.

In order to get high or drunk from Nyquil, you’d need to take a lot, and in doing so you’d be taking far more APAP than your body is meant to handle.

Essentially, abusing Nyquil is as much of a good idea as sniffing glue. You might feel a bit odd, but you won’t feel good, and it’s not worth the damage you’ll do to your liver.

If you want to get drunk, just get some booze – liquor doesn’t have APAP in, so although you can still damage your liver, it’s a lot safer than downing Nyquil.
