Cough, sinus, headaches, nosebleeds. Taking dayquil. Does dayquil cause nosebleeds?

I have been sick so I have been taking Dayquil to relieve some of my cold symptoms (like coughing, sinus , headaches , etc.). This morning I woke up abruptly when I was swallowing my blood. I was laying on my back and had a bloody nose, so the blood was just running down my throat. Would the Dayquil cause the bloody nose, or would it be caused by something else? I just want to know whether I should continue taking medicine, or suffer the cold without medication (to prevent nose bleeds ).

hello dear
thanks for your query at HCM
dayquil can cause decrease in blood platelets in rare occasions.
platelets are cells that are present in our blood that stop bleeding inside body.
any decrease in platelets will cause bleeding
but this is very rare cause ,
you should consider other things for your bleeding.
i recommend you to consult ent specialist so that he can examine and guide you in furrther investigation and management.
till then get complete blood picture with platelet count
