For the last few nights, when I take my zoloft it's causing a big burning sensation in my chest immediately after taking it. It almost feels like the pill is caught in my throat, which I know is not the case. It's causing excessive saliva and making me want to spit or vomit. I was wondering if anyone else had this feeling!!!! I've been having a good outcome with this until now. It only happened a couple of times but wow was that uncomfortable.
