Question about coughing and the pill?

I have a question about sickness (cold and flu) and the pill. I took it at the same time as I usually do and I coughed a bit of phlegm about 12 minutes after taking it. As gross as it may sound, it wasn't a lot of phlegm and by impulse I just swallowed it back (gross, I know). Im afraid I regurgitated the pill but since it wasn't expelled from my body should this affect the efficacy of the pill or...?

  • Hi there

    It will be ok as you didn’t actually vomit. It’s only an issue if you vomit within 2 hours of taking a pill, then it would need to be repeated.

    I hope this helps

    Best wishes
