You should go to ER ASAP as there is clear history of pill aspiration and an early intervention may reduce the detrimental effects of a partially dissolved pill.

We can not be sure what effects you might have in next few hours; may be more coughing, reflex bronchospasm and shortness of breath, or the pill may chemically induce inflammation in airways.

So better to go to ER and they may plan to take it out through bronchoscopy.

Good luck

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
