    My doctor started me on metformin. A couple weeks in, I developed an extreme bitter taste in my mouth so I went off of it and she put me on Victoza. I still have that terrible taste - everything I eat tastes awful and I am living on tic tacs and listerine edible sheets to try and mask the taste. I had this same thing several years ago when I was on terbinafine (which was an anti fungal medicine) and the bitterness lasted 4 months after I stopped taking it. Do you think since I got the taste when I was on metformin that the Victoza is now the cause of it?

    Hi everyone,

    My name is Laurie and I am new to the group. I have been diagnosed with AS and am in the middle of a new flare up. I am noticing that my Diet Coke doesn't taste good anymore. Neither does popcorn and butter. I have a red throat and a few white spots in my mouth. Is the loss of taste a temporary thing, I hope? I guess it would be good for getting me to drink more water instead of Diet Coke. Maybe going gluten free will help?

    I have lost taste and have metallic taste. Nothing tastes good. Have to force myself to eat after taking simvastatin for a year. Dr. could not figure out what was wrong. Dismissed me saying it was age. (I am 70) Stopped on my own after reading reports of others with problem. How long does it take to get taste back to normal?

  • I was first diagnosed with AF in October 2011 and ...

    I was first diagnosed with AF in October 2011 and have had it on and off ever since. In October 2016 I had a cardioversion which lasted for 3 weeks, then I had another at the beginning of this July which didn't work followed by a 3rd attempt on July 20th which has lasted for 3 months. I will be 65 at Xmas. With each episode, I've noticed a horrid metallic taste in my mouth for a few hours before the AF comes on although I don't have this taste all the time. I do have other health issues. I would like to join the group to see if anyone has any coping strategies that I could try. Thank you, Janice.

    My Gabapentin prescription was increased and after a few days I could not taste salt or sweet anymore. Has anyone stopped the Gabapentin and gotten their taste back?
