!! OMG, Doctors warns against ‘Nyquil Chicken’ TikTok trend !!

TMZ is reporting on a new TikTok trend that has got us HUNGRY!

It sounds as disgusting as it is dangerous … “sleepy chicken” is what it’s called … some people say it helps with cold symptoms … duh.
Thing is … it’s also unsafe. Meds that are boiled can be dangerous because they’re much more concentrated and powerful and change properties … so says the FDA.What’s more … just smelling it can be dangerous. Folks at the FDA say inhaling vapors during the cooking process causes the drug to enter the cook’s system, causing potential lung damage.

Sounds delicious. And our favorite color! Here’s the FDA’s full warning after the jump!

A recent social media video challenge encourages people to cook chicken in NyQuil (acetaminophen, dextromethorphan, and doxylamine) or another similar OTC cough and cold medication, presumably to eat.

The challenge sounds silly and unappetizing — and it is. But it could also be very unsafe. 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.
