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 try a proton pump inhibitor (prilosec / Prevacid (lansoprazole) are now over the counter) for about 7-14 days in the evenings and see if symptoms disappear. If not, to be safe, should see a doc. Can also try sleeping in recliner / at >30degree angle for 2-3 nights and see if no symptoms--this would support gerd as cause.
