    I had major open heart surgery on two valves. amiodarone has been prescribed. Nothing I eat tastes as it used to and many things taste so bad I can not eat them. I have lost almost 25 lbs. Does this go away. My doctor says he may be able to wean me off the amiodarone after 3 months. If so, will my tate one back to normal?

    hi I recently was prescribed clindamycin 6/10/2017 and felt i was having a bad reaction and quit taking it after only 2 tablets. After i got up the next morning and tried to eat some food and realized i had no taste or smell. I saw my GP doctor a few days later and he prescribed some steroids, but so far as 7/5/2017 not much improvement. I am not sure what to do next?? Should i see neurologist and take taste and smell tests? My GP doesn't seem to be much help! rich

    I was diagnosed with cellulitis about 4 weeks ago. Had 14 days of Cephalexin. Cellulitis is better, but metallic taste in mouth since the beginning. Haven't spoken with a doctor about it. Just started reading about how common this is.

    I've been taking Hydroxyurea for about a year to lower my platelets . I'm up to 16 - 500mg per week.About 4 months ago I completely lost all my food taste. My hematologist says that the Hydroxyurea is not causing it. Is there anyone that experienced loss of food taste while in this medication?

    On Coumadin for a month for DVT. I am feeling cramps all over my body since went on Coumadin. Also have awful metallic taste in my mouth since on Coumadin.
    Have kidney disease Stage 3.
    Take furosamide, spirolectone, and potassium -4 tabs each day
    Just went back on Omeprazole.
    Do not have a colon, have had a J pouch since 1984 (redone in 1999).
    What can I do to get rid of the cramps and metallic taste? I have to be on Coumadin at least 3-6 months.
