Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX, thanks for using XXXXXXX

I want some more information to clarify your query.

1. What do you mean by BAC? Is it blood alcohol level, or any other. Kindly expand it.

The synthyroid and D amphetamine will help you to come out of depression. If you explain in detail about the problem, I will try my best to explain the problem and the medications you are taking along with any side effects.

Kindly give me the above mentioned information.
Awaiting for your replay.

Brief Answer:
Nyquil has alcohol as inactive ingradient

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX, Thanks for the replay.

Yes, as suspected by you, NyQuil has 25 % alcohol content. The alcohol is listed as an inactive ingredient or additive. So this can cause the breath analyzer to detect alcohol.

Other drugs you listed does not cause the elevation of alcohol.

Hope this answered your question. Feel free to ask if any other related question and I will be glad to answer them.

Wish you and your sister good health.
