This should be a no-brainer but apparently it needed to be said by the FDA. The latest TikTok craze has been deemed harmful enough to warrant a warning from the Food and Drug Administration.
TikTokers have been making what they call "sleepy chicken." It's chicken marinated in NyQuil and then cooked. It sounds and looks disgusting, but people are trying it anyway and tout its effectiveness at treating cold symptoms. But the FDA, not surprisingly, says it's very dangerous and people should stop it immediately.
First, they say that cooking the medicine can make it more powerful. Not only that, but smelling cooked medicine can be very harmful and cause lung damage.
