NyQuil’s introduction in 1966 built on this by providing complete multi-symptom relief in a single liquid product. Prior to NyQuil, families had to have one medicine for colds and stuffed up heads, another medicine for scratchy throats and coughs, and another for aches and pains. Only a medical professional could safely recommend what medicines to use together.
