I inhaled a piece of rice into my airway

I was coughing deeply but not now. I feel like something is stuck in my airway but I can’t get it out. The more I try to get it out the more I cough and vomit. I am also coughing up white phlegm.

Fkn meds, since upping my dose I have been choking on food, water, saliva and even during sleep.

Well it says if it gets into the lungs it can cause infection and needs a Dr to remive it with tools. Right now I just feel like its in my throat’s airway, hopefully I can cough it out. I thought saliva can digest/dissilve it but I guess not.

You need to tell your dr that you’re choking on everything immediately . That’s very dangerous.

Are you on clozapine now?

I told him, he said its because my risperidone causes dry throat, he said to drink more water but I don’t believe him. I think these meds messup with throat muscles.

No I am on 5mg risperidone recently, was on 6mg.

Try following his advice for a week. If it’s still going on, contact him again and say it’s not helping

It’s very dangerous to not be able to swallow. I’ve been there and had to relearn how to swallow. It’s scary

I never hsd this issue, sure I was getting thirsty, but nothing abnormal on Invega (xeplion 75mg) equivalent 4-5mg of risperidone. I remember waking up at night to chug some mineral water or juice constantly

How did you relearn? On 6mg I would choke in my sleep daily waking up unable to breath for up to a min but I told my Dr this and he reduced it to 5mg. Now it rarely happens but I still choke during the day sometimes eventhough I have been trying to eat and drink very slowly to avoid choking.

Its scary, my friend’s father got hospitalized because he choked on fish bone. They had to manually remove it.

I worked with a speech language pathologist actually in the hospital until I could swallow again

Do you think that vaping also enhances your problem?

I still didn’t go do the test but I have the required paper. Its far in another city and I fear driving far. Maybe I should take the metro. But I really think all these problems are caused by my risperidone and obesity, I am almost 310lb 5ft10.

No I don’t think so. The only bad thing vaping does to me is causing some white phlegm.

Yeah I choke on my food lots of time but especially water.
I’m on 4mg of risperidone

When I brought it up with my psychiatrist she dismissed it and said I should go see a GI doctor first.

She wants me on these meds no matter what.

Even though I’m breathing in my water!

This could cause pneumonia!

In my case I didn’t have this problem on risperidone doses lower than 5mg, I was on 3mg.
