I been on zoloft for a few days and last night got a severe upper stomach ache which lasted about 5 minutes but today my stomach is still hurting and have heartburn. I only ate pasta and chicken. Does anyone else have these side effects and do they get better? Stomach pain is intense and also have lots of gas.

The pain started immediately after I ate. And today I have constipation. The pain in located in the center of my stomach about 5 inches above my belly button.
Gas is common. Have you gotten constipated from it? That's common too, but it can be managed. If you take simethicone tablets (gas-x etc) it will help the gas. Make sure you're drinking plenty of water.
I use to be on zoloft for quite some time years ago, but not anymore due to cost and that I no longer have insurance... also the generic for zoloft does not even come close sertraline. Zoloft can be pretty treacherous on the stomach so you may want to try an antacid, a slice of bread or even better saltines which should alleviate the cramping, pain, heartburn and so on..you should give yourself at least 1/2 hour before eating your meal and refrain from citrus drinks, this should help and give your body time to adjust.
