Likely a cold: Controversy exists about vitC supplements for a cold. Taking the suggested amount (and not more) is safe. Warning signs that should prompt one to see a physician are sudden worsening of the throat pain, enlarging lymph nodes, persistent fever, any resultant breathing difficulty, sinus pressure after 14 days that is not improving, and suddenly getting worse after a period of improvement. ...Read more

I think that I aspirated vitamin C pill. Would I be coughing if it were in my lungs? Is it unlikely if I'm not coughing?

I think that I aspirated vitamin C pill. Would I be coughing if it were in my lungs? Is it unlikely if I'm not coughing?

Cough protects you: Aspirating happens quite commonly -I can't even count how many times I've taken a drink of water and it 'went down the wrong pipe'. The cough reflex is there to protect the lungs, and in ur case I would be almost certain ur body did what it was supposed to do -cough it OUT of the airways and back into the GI tract -oropharynx or esophagus. If cough persists, you have pain or other symptoms-see doc ...Read more
