Couldn't find what you looking for?


Hello all.  Recently my mother said that her tablet is stuck in her throat.  She takes 20 MG Pravastatin Sodium.  I told her to drink lots of water and eat some bread and crackers.  She says it still feels like it is still stuck.  If it is possible that the tablet is stuck, will this be something that we are concerned of, or just something that will go away without any problems?  My mother is not having breathing nor swallowing problems.


Thanks in advance!


It seems unlikely that your mothers tablet would still be stuck in her throat after consuming water and food that went down alright. If she still feels like something (her tablet) is still stuck, I'd suggest she see her doctor as she might have the start of a problem swallowing.
