Thank you for your question.

I think that with the symptoms that you are having you should be seen in the ER to make sure we rule out a pill being stuck in your airway in which case it may require removal via a bronchoscope.

You mentioned that your breathing sounds like 'asthma' which may mean that the pill may either be stuck in the airway or may have irritated your airway to cause wheezing.
