FDA Warns Against Using NyQuil As A Chicken Marinade


The Food and Drug Administration has offered Americans some food for thought: It’s a bad idea to use NyQuil as a chicken marinade.The federal agency felt obligated to issue the warning in light of a social media challenge encouraging people to cook chicken in NyQuil and other cough medicine

The FDA’s release notes that the idea of cooking chicken in cough syrup is “silly and unappetizing.” But it is also potentially dangerous: Boiling a medication can make it much more concentrated and change its properties in other ways. Even if you don’t eat the chicken, inhaling the medication’s vapors while cooking could cause high levels of the drugs to enter your body. It could also hurt your lungs. Put simply: Someone could take a dangerously high amount of the cough and cold medicine without even realizing it. The FDA didn’t cite any actual reports of people who’ve gone to the emergency room after chowing down on “NyQuil chicken.” But the agency mentioned a previous TikTok challenge that urged people to take large doses of the allergy medicine diphenhydramine (sold under the brand name of Benadryl, among others) to try to induce hallucinations, and that it led to reports of teenagers going to the emergency room.Why are teens more likely to want to participate in bizarre, potentially dangerous stunts on social media?Advertisement According to HealthyChildren.org, the prefrontal cortex, the part of the brain that handles rational thought, isn’t fully developed until a person hits their mid-20s. This is why teens tend to be more impulsive than adults, and why they may be more likely to succumb to the power of social media, which rewards risky and outlandish behavior: Kids won’t necessarily stop to consider that laundry detergent is a poison that can burn their throats and damage their airways. Or that misusing medications like diphenhydramine (Benadryl) and similar medicines can cause serious heart problems, seizures and coma. What they will focus on is that a popular kid in class did this and got hundreds of likes and comments. Of course, social media users had thoughts...Why'd they call it nyquil chicken and not robitusserie— Matt Negrin, HOST OF HARDBALL AT 7PM ON MSNBC (@MattNegrin) September 20, 2022 you can’t stop me from birthing 5 babies and feeding them nothing but nyquil chicken, it’s my right as an american— Sydney Leathers (@sydneyelainexo) September 20, 2022 I feel like people cooking chicken in NyQuil is the kind of problem that solves itself. https://t.co/pKgSuysi2I— Kashana (@kashanacauley) September 20, 2022 Advertisement forget nyquil chicken in this house it’s all chicken vicksaloo— Andy Downing (@andydowning33) September 20, 2022 Thank god I read this.
