What do breathing difficulty and throat congestion indicate?

woke up gasping for air...felt as if I had cotton in my throat. After gasping for air and coughing for about 15 airways cleared. NEVER had this before. could this be an adverse reaction to new pills i got today from amazon? greenceutics green pura (back of bottle says not evauluated by FDA) and flexoplex. Also at something new hot and spicy cheezits. My breathing is fine now...still feel like a piece of hair is stuck in my throat.

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

It was likely an allergic reaction to the new pills you got.

Take them to your doctor the next time you go and let him/her know what happened. In any case, do not take any more of the pills.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
