marcus on Jun, 3, 2012:
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.
From this study (2 years ago):
when i take zoloft or its generic sertraline,i sometimes get really bad heartburn.
I can feel it down along the path that the tablet took getting to my gut.
It is really painful, i have tried ant acids, drinking milk or soy milk to wash the tablet residue from my oesophagus. i have noticed it is severely worse when i have wet hands and take the tablet, as the tablet starts to break up before it gets down. it leaves a trail that i try to wash down.
please help this is really painful
