Hi there,

Thanks for your query.

You have probably taken an overdose of eldoper. This drug inhibits the rhythmic forward movement of the bowel, which propels the food ahead in the intestine. Therefore, it is used to stop profuse/severe diarrhea.

Food pipe is part of the intestine. Eldoper has inhibited the food pipe movement too, due to which you are facing difficulty in swallowing food/water.

Cannot do anything at this stage. You will be normal, once the side effect of eldoper wanes off (in 24-48 hours).
