Hello all you lovely people,

I will be in Ajijic for a couple of weeks...starting next week. On my last trip from NOB, the TSA absconded with my Nyquil which keeps my nose open when I sleep. Could not find it in the DFW airport during the layover or the Farmacia Guadalajara or even Walmart,Chapala.

Hard to believe the drug companies don't have a look alike in Mexico.

Anyone have an idea?

David,

Years back I asked a Pharmacist up north if there was a generic alternative to Nyquil. After telling me there wasn't, she went on to say it was "easy to replicate Nyquil's effects, it's essentially just antihistamine and alcohol".  

Since, I have confirmed this with several Doctors, none have said anything against the practice.

Read the label, see for yourself.

A couple of antihistamine pills and a shot of alcohol.

TSA grabbed it---from where?  Carry-on?  Probably exceeded ounces limit.  

Have never seen it for sale here locally. 

We have carried it successfully in checked luggage--plastic bottles, double baggies.  Now if you get the red light at GDL, they may take it. 

FYI, if all you want is to keep your nasal passages open, why not those nose strips like Breathe Right??
