Suspected to be given Nyquil. Can the drug be detected by any test?

My daughter just informed me that her dad gives her medicine so she doesn t bounce off the walls I am really concerned he is giving her Nyquil to put her to sleep. He often sits her in front of the TV and sleeps while she is at his house one day a week. Can we have her DNA tested for drugs like that? Are they detectable?? She said the pill is green.

Hello dear..
Nyquil is a preparation used to provide relief from symptoms of common cold..and one of its constituent, Dextromethorphan (a cough suppressant) has sedative properties.
The pill is green in color & the drug can be detected in blood sample or urine sample.
Hope this answers your question.
Thanks & take care.
