Pupil dilation and cold flu meds

Patient : Sunday I woke up with Cold And flu like symptoms so on my way home from work that night I picked up vicksdayquil and nightquil caps and took them for the following two days(never taken before). Tues I woke up to my eyes were dilated. Didn't get to excited assumed it was the meds. My question is my last dose was tues around 1430. So I am going on my second day without and my eyes are still dilated. don't think it's necessary to go to the eye doc yet. But how long is To long? Only problem now is that my eyes being so dilated is leaving me with a headache that I'm just taking ibuprofen for.
