Unable to get complete sleep. Is it dangerous to take Nyquil every night?

Is it dangerous to take Nyquil every night? I sleep extremely well when I take it but don t sleep well at all when I don t. So I use it almost every night. I don t sleep well with Benadryl or Melatonin or Advil Pm. I typically wake at 4am and have trouble going back to sleep. But with Nyquil I have a deep and long lasting sleep and wake refreshed in the am. What is the down side to this.

Neurologist 's  Response
Dear bvivino
You appear to be suffering with chronic insomnia with addiction to nyquil. Nyquil is not a treatment for insomnia. It has various compounds which are addictive and can be harmful in the long run taken on chronic basis. You need to get yourself evaluated by a Neurologist or Sleep Specialist who would then work up your case to find the root cause for your insomnia and prescribe medicines and treatment accordingly.
