  • Can you get a finger in there to scoop it out? Or what if he tries to throw up? I dont know, just a few suggestions. How horrible and uncomfortable he must be. Hope he gets it out.

  • Try gargling or drinking soda really fast in order to burp. Coughing and burping are excellent ways to dislodge items that are stuck in the airway or throat.

  • Peanut butterand raw potatoes have always helped me. Sometimes if I push one the area where the pill is and drink some water while pushing it helps
