Nyquil, also known as Vick’s Nyquil, is a cold medication that is intended to help the user feel better and get to sleep and then wake up feeling better the next morning. The medication is made by Vicks, which in turn is owned by Procter & Gamble. Procter and Gamble is a Fortune 700 company that is responsible for making a large variety of goods. Vicks was started in the late 1800’s by Dr. Joshua Vick in North Carolina. The company was subsequently taken over by his brother-in-law. The most popular of the product line was the Vick’s Magic Croup Salve, which became VapoRub in 1912. The company subsequently grew and became more popular and lucrative and finally it was bought by Procter & Gamble in 1985.
Nyquil has several different versions of the products that are all intended to relieve col and flu symptoms. There is Nyquil Cold/Flu Multisymptom Relief, Nyquil D, Nyquil Cough, Nyquil Sinus, and a children’s formula – Nyquil Children’s. Many of these are available in either liquid or pill form. Nyquil recently reformulated many of their products, due to the legislation passed in 2006 designed to cut down on illegal use of ephedrine. Ephedrine was used in Nyquil medication, but many people were using the product to distill down the Nyquil to products which could be used to make methamphetamine’s. To make the products more accessible, ephedrine and pseudo-ephedrine was removed from many of the NyQuil products. Those that still contain ephedrine are located behind the pharmacy counter. All Nyquil products contain versions of antihistamines that create a feeling of sleepiness and sedation. That is why Nyquil is intended to be taken before going to sleep to make the user wake up feeling good in the morning. The counterpart to Nyquil, Dayquil, has an altered formula that does not cause drowsiness so it can be taken during the day.
