Having mono and tonsils. Taking antibiotics and ibuprofen for sinus. Will Nyquil help to sleep?

My 18 year old daughter has mono (diagnosed last Monday). She s on a round of antibiotics (for sinus infection) and had a steroid shot to the hip yesterday. Her tonsils are almost closing up her throat and she is in extreme pain right now. She s been taking ibuprofen regularly for the pain, but nothing is touching the pain. She s in bad shape right now. Is it ok to take Nyquil just so she can sleep? she s in TEARS right now.

Hello, Your's daughter's tonsils are enlarged, no doubt, might be due to MONO, reason may be some bacteria.She is feeling extreme pain so pl try hot saline gargles, with some local iodine type solution. Nyquil produce mild sedation and this will give relief to your daughter that is prime important at now. 2ndly disease is not serious so please don't take unnecessary burden. Swollen tonsils will diminishes in short period. For pain consult your physician he will prescribe some potent painkiller.
