Sertraline - heartburn

Posted , 5 users are following.

Oh Lordy lord..... I've been on meds for my anxiety for years now, but recently my dosage of sertraline was increased from 100 to 150...... didn't feel very nice at first, but the anxiety seems to be a lot better now thankfully.

That said, in the past 2 weeks I've had 2 really bad cases of heartburn which come on shortly after taking the tabs, and nothing will clear it......

For anyone else who has, or is experiencing this - I've found that taking them with milk, and making sure you drink a full glass helps..... I was only sipping enough water to swallow the tabs before.

    I have been on 50 mg of setraline for 5 weeks and increased to 100mg for nearly a week not feeling good the only thing that helps is taking a Diazapan when it gets too bad do you think this will get better am at the end of my tether x

      I been on 25mgs of sertraline for 6 months then one day i felt my anxiety creep back so my doctor said to increase to 50mg and let me tell you it felt like i was first starting the meds with alot of side effects. But its been 2 1/2 weeks and i feel like its getting better. So just be patient and it will pass.
