Had aspiration: Common reaction 2 aspiration. If u think juice is bad try it with birds eye peppers. It is miserable but the cough will clear things out, tho may take a few hours in some cases depending on the dose & how far aspirated. Should clear, if not c ur pcp. Juice is acid & worse than aspirating water, more of an irritant.
