    Here's my situation.
    I was having symptoms for strep and I usually know because I know my body.
    I usually just pop some Amoxicillin (antibiotic) and boom gone.
    But I didn't have any and my I asked my friend if he had any Latin around the house. He said no but his wife has some Clindamycin which is an antibiotic.
    So I took it. No issues I was taking the one pill a day for like 3-4 days. I felt like I got better and stopped taking them.

    A few weeks later a real bad cold hit me or sinus infection because allergies were real bad here in San Antonio. I had a fever, night sweats the whole shabang.
    I decided to take the Clindamycin again but this time I only took it for two days.
    I ended up getting some fever blisters on my gums.... a bit of a sore throat but now my tongue is sensitive to touch and I've lost all taste.

    Went to the dentist and oral surgeon all they could come up with was that it's just viral let it run its course. They gave me magic mouthwash which really just numbs your mouth for pain.
    I hadn't mentioned the Clindamycin to them because I didn't remember taking it.

    Is there a possibility my taste will come back since I don't take the Clindamycin anymore?

    If I tell a doctor is there medication to reverse the effects?

    Is this permanent?

    I took Cozaar for about a week and lost my sense of taste almost immediately. I stopped taking it and wonder how long it will be before my taste comes back.

    I am 18 years old, female and I have started the anti-depressant Zoloft (seteraline) and I have taken the medication for about 4 days and I have just began to notice a metallic taste when I drink beverages. Is this normal or could I be pregnant?
