Severe heart burn, difficulty in swallowing, belching after taking Zoloft. Acid reflux?

I took my night time med, Zoloft , with water at around midnight last night. Very shortly after, I felt severe heart burn . I felt like the pill didn t go down my throat! I tried more water, drinking milk, eating something and Kaopectate . I finally had a little relief, enough to go to sleep. However, I woke up this morning with some heart burn that is still with me tonight. I ve also been belching some. Is this part of my acid reflux?
