Does Nyquil help cure a head trauma?

I had a impact head trauma five days ago that knocked me unconscious. I had a clear CAT scan and no longer have any symptoms like headaches and fogginess. I m having trouble sleeping due to a head and chest cold that I also have. Can I safely take a dose of Nyquil at this point in my concussion recovery?

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

The head and chest cold are not related to the head trauma and since the CAT scan was clear, there is nothing to worry about.

Hence, I don't see why you shouldn't use Nyquil for your symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ornela Ademovi
