Drug interactions of antibiotic and probiotic

Last night I was taking a antibiotic and a probiotic and they are pretty big pills. I started to cchoke on one. I think I inhaled it. I coughed a lot, but no weezing or stridor . A little coughing today and some right sided chest / back pain . But I do have back problems and had an adjustment yesterday so I don t know if that is muscle pain or actual chest pain.

General & Family Physician 's  Response
This is unlikey that you inhale a pill, specially when you say its a big size. You feel chocked with slightest touch of it to the respiratory tube. Coughing is a result of that. With the next attempt it usually goes to the stomach. At time you continue to have that choking sensation, which doesnt mean that you inhaled it.

Chest pain for inhaling it would be generaly intolerable, so its unlikely. Start with a paracetamol-diclofenac combination. Check the response for two days and get a chest x-ray done to alleviate your anxiety.

I have latent TB and I am currently on isoniazid 300 mg with a b6 supplement daily . I was wondering if I should be taking a probiotic with this as well due to the fact that the antibiotic is so strong. I was also curious to know what the interaction of the medication with marijuana would be/can it be harmful? Thank you in advance.

When I raise my arms high, or even pull my arms back hard and a bit up, the veins in my neck begin to distend some. I have no other pemberton sign symptoms such as flushing that I can see, nor stridor. I have had some difficulty breathing for a year and a half, but nothing serious and it hasn t changed. I ve had two CT scans of the lungs b/c of a dimer test (checking for clots, then found a nodule, so there was a follow up CT). Nevertheless, does the increased pressure in the vessels mean anything or is this kind of thing normal?

Hi, Our 9 year old granddaughter has had 5 ER visits and was flown to Anchorage. She is now home but… This started about a month ago, their whole family had a doctor’s visit all having strep throat. The morning of the visit she started having a small whistle noise when breathing although she showed no distress of not getting enough air. But by the time she reached the doctor’s office it was getting worse. The doctors did a quick check and said she needed to go to the ER. At the hospital she was in full Stridor, they gave a breathing treatment and took x-rays. The x-ray showed an hour glass shape of her airway with swelling around the airway. Epiglottis looked fine they said. She spent the night in the hospital given antibiotics, doc said tonsillitis . Within the next 7 days she had a total of 4 ER visits and 3 nights in the hospital. Steroids and breathing treatments did seem to help. She was treated for croup. Day 8 she had a follow up doc appointment aDoes nd at that she had a full blown attack. Very bad Stridor, could not get enough air but always o2 was at 100%. She was sent to anchorage there they ran tests checked her throat and said it was vocal cord dysfunction, although the test was not done during an attack.. We have been trying to learn how to breathing differently. But now the attacks are different, they are more like charley horse cramping in the throat, spasms that last about a minute quit a minute and go on for an hour to an hour and a half. Very painful for her. Also we have to watch that her does not panic and hyperventilate. From our reach it feels like there is more than one thing going on, Does this charley horse spasms sound like it is vocal cord dysfunction?
