    hi,i am a 36 y/o Caucasian male from australia.
    i have been taking sertraline (zoloft) and its generics for about 15 years.
    i noticed on occasions that if the tablet got wet, i would get heartburn. for example if scooping water from a tap to take medication.
    the tablet starts to break up and leaves a paste that when swallowed is really painful.
    it causes a heartburn type feeling all down the oesophagus to my gut. I think i may try putting the pills in capsules. i don't understand why the company that makes these pills hasn't already don't this. it is really painful and lasts about 30 minutes minimum.
    to help wash down this heartburn i have tried drinking lots of milk or soy milk and eating something to slough down the residue.
    it does work somewhat so i suggest that but it still leaves a little heartburn.
    I have it right now. actually... i just drank a whole lot of soy milk (one glass) and it feels a lot better.

    I had a brain hemorrhage in my occipital lobe. It left me with with a partial seizure disorder. The seizures would interrupt my ability to see.
