RadaTimikaOnline – Hello friends, back again with the admin who will share the latest news or news, which is currently viral and trending. Read on for this article to the end, with the title Oh, Here’s an Easy Way to Make it Follow Nyquil Chicken Tiktok Trend
An emerging trend on TikTok called the “sleeping chicken challenge,” also called “NyQuil chicken,” has led many users of the platform to cook chicken meat in a liquid form of NyQuil, a syrup used to treat cold and flu symptoms.
NyQuil, a common over-the-counter medication, is known to induce drowsiness and also help relieve fever, nasal congestion and cough. So why do people marinate meat in cough syrup and what are the risks?
In a video on TikTok posted by Rob Flo in September 2020, which currently has more than 4.7 million views, a user pours some NightTime – a similar alternative to NyQuil – over chicken, explaining in a voiceover that his wife had recently fallen ill and that he had already used this “magic remedy.” “Sometimes steam really makes you want to sleep,” Flo said in the video that went viral.

Near the end of the clip, the announcer said, “What you’re looking for is blue.” Once the cooking was finished, Flo poured the rest of the medicine from the pot back into the original bottle.
Looking at the rest of the author’s content, one might assume that this recipe was posted for the sole purpose of going viral, rather than actually curing his wife of a cold. But the damage has already been done.
Shortly after the first video was posted, the hashtags #SleepyChicken and #NyQuilChicken began appearing on the video-sharing platform. Although the latter has since been banned on TikTok, you can still easily find videos with this challenge by typing “NyQuil chicken” in the app’s search bar.
Testing the “cooking” trend, some users have shared their own version of the dish, substituting Flo’s sizzling skillet for a slow cooker. Others can be seen doing something similar with whole chickens, not just breasts.
If you haven’t figured it out yet, cooking anything in any kind of cough syrup is a very bad idea. Not only will the food be horribly unpalatable, but boiling the water out of the medicine can make it much more concentrated and thus increase the risk of overdose. This is where the difficulties arise.
“The risk of overdose depends on the ingredients in the medication,” Forbes reported, highlighting this trend. Yes, different cold and cough medicines often contain different ingredients, but they also always share common active ingredients such as dextromethorphan, acetaminophen and antihistamines such as doxylamine succinate.
An excess of dextromethorphan, which is an opioid and is commonly found in cough suppressants, can cause “drowsiness, dizziness, convulsions, nausea, vomiting, changes in blood pressure, constipation, respiratory problems, blurred vision, spasms, rapid heartbeat, fever, hallucinations, brain damage and even coma,” the publication says.
Too much acetaminophen can damage the liver and lead to liver failure, while too much doxylamine succinate can cause dry mouth, dilated pupils, rhabdomyolysis, insomnia, night terrors, hallucinations, seizures and death. In addition, an overdose of any of these drugs can result in death. I bet chicken blue doesn’t sound so funny now, does it?
Dr. Aaron Hartman, a physician and associate professor of family medicine at Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU), told MIC, “When you prepare cough medicine like NyQuil, you evaporate the water and alcohol, leaving the chicken with a super-concentrated amount of drug in the meat.”
As if all this weren’t enough, the trend poses an even greater risk to anyone in your friendly company who decides to become a freaking chef, since inhaling the syrup fumes is essentially ingesting them. In other words, you have no way of controlling the amount of the drug that enters your system.

This, in turn, can make an overdose more likely. Remember when teenagers would get hooked on cough syrup in search of a cheap high? NyQuil chicken is basically what happens when they pick up culinary trends within the walls of their own home.
This challenge is neither the first nor the last dangerous (or even deadly) trend to emerge on the Internet. The tide challenge probably comes to mind, followed by a whole swarm of new and dangerous trends.
As new as this particular challenge may seem, it wasn’t actually invented on TikTok. Its history as a YouTube meme and trend began back in 2017, when Twitter user @trjstn posted an image of several jars of NyQuil next to greenish chunks of chicken with the facetious caption, “If you get NyQuil chicken…., DON’T pass it up.”
