Brief Answer: Plain Nyquil can be taken by you but not Nyquil-D; Detailed Answer: Hi XXXX As you have cardiac disease, you need to take other drugs with caution. Plain Nyquil can be taken by you but not Nyquil D; Please note the difference- Nnyquil D ( not nyquil) contain psuedo ephidrene which should not be used by cardiac patients. However, you can safely take tylenol. if you have any doubt, please post. all the best.
