DayQuil vs NyQuil

I always ponder this when I am sick: they make orange flavored DayQuil and cherry flavored NyQuil so why don't they make orange flavored NyQuil and cherry flavored DayQuil? This is a real problem for me because I hate the orange crap. It tastes disgusting and for the first few minutes after swallowing it I feel like I am going to be sick because it doesn't sit well in my stomach. I have absolutely no problems with the cherry. It tastes OK and doesn't upset my tummy. But I can't take NyQuil during the day because it would put me to sleep so I am stuck with the nasty and disgusting orange junk. Why can't they make cherry DayQuil?

Why can't you sleep during the day since you're home now and have no comps to worry about? It might do you good to just be zonked.

I'm sorry you feel so crappy. I used my cupcake icon because it's Remus coming to visit you, bearing chocolate.

Because I don't want to sleep all day. I want to play with the puppies and read books.

If I'm not feeling better tomorrow, I might take the NyQuil and sleep all day.

Yummy cupcake and even yummier Remus. :) When your comment popped up, I was just unwrapping a piece of chocolate. Good timing.

If you can’t handle the orange liquid, maybe you could try the capsules?

Sorry you're feeling cruddy!

I go the capsule route on occasion but the liquid starts working so much more quickly. I'll live I'm sure.

How goes your teeth/jaw?

Yeah, the liquid does give much faster relief.

It's okay. It's getting better slowly but surely. Most of the swelling's gone down now.

I'm glad the swelling has gone down. Hopefully we'll both get better soon.

If you get a petition going for cherry Dayquil, I will sign it. Have you tried the cherry flavored Tylenol Sore Throat liquid stuff? That's what I like to use in the daytime.

I have been meaning to congratulate you on passing your comps! Great job. :)

Hope you feel better soon!

I haven't tried that Tylenol stuff. I'll have to give it a shot. Anything has got to be better than orange DayQuil (other than the green regular DayQuil).

I am so happy to be done with comps. It seems that a large percentage of the comps class every year gets sick within a few weeks of comps ending. I started getting sick two days after I finished my orals. I suppose it is just that you push and push your body so hard that when you are done you just crash hard. Here's hoping it goes away soon.
