When i wake up I have major heart burn. Is that from the trazodone?

Not likely.: It is probably from lying flat and reflux.

Can also try sleeping in recliner / at >30degree angle for 2-3 nights and see if no symptoms--this would support gerd as cause. ...Read more

How can I tell if I am having a heart burn or heart attack? It seems that symptoms of heart burn and heart attack are very similar, how can I tell the differences and the warning signs before it's too late

I find it very useful to treat the heartburn proactively by avoiding foods that cause it and maybe using medication to suppress it if needed. That way you are less likely to get any chest pain. You should also talk to your doctor about modifying your risk factors for heart disease. ...Read more
