Roll your own Day-Quil

1 07 2008

As you might know, if you’re using a Dexcom, you can’t take Tylenol (acetaminophen).  For some reason, it produces false highs and will result in inaccurate data.  I prefer ibuprofen for my pain relief, so that was no problem.

However, what do you do about drug cocktails, such as Day-Quil, that have multiple drugs in one pill?  Most often, these include acetaminophen.  Well, here’s what I did when I was sick this weekend:

This is approximately equivalent to 2 Day-Quil.  Works just the same, without the off-limits Tylenol.

So, does anyone know of a good equivalent for Midol that doesn’t have acetaminophen?
