I took a couple of cocodamol tablets a couple of hours ago..

Resolved Question:

I took a couple of cocodamol tablets a couple of hours ago.. When I swallowed the first one it made my chest and back hurt for a few seconds like as though I had taken in air at the same time as swallowing.. The second tablet went down fine.. Is it possible that the first one went into my lungs?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Had it gone into your lungs you would have had a lot of coughing.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

If there was no coughing then it did not go down your lungs.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Taking in some air with the tablet can sometimes cause a bit of pain which is not something to worry about.
