I am very sorry for your symptoms.
The pill may cause irritation of the esophagus.
It can cause burning sensation in the chest.
You can try to take something which can stick & carry it down.
You can take banana, white bread.
Please try to drink fluid like plain water.
It would have a soothing effect.
Liquid antacid can also give relief.
If you still feel any symptom, I would advise to get an examination by doctor.
I hope this information will be helpful.
If you have any query, please feel free to ask.
If you are happy with my answer please click on the Excellent/Good rating.
Wish you healthy life.

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
