Just entering my sixth week of taste loss. I'm 68 and have a low BMI, which it seems is not a bonus in recovering one's sense of taste quickly. Unfortunately, food still resembles cardboard and hot and cold drinks sea water. It's been an effort to keep eating and drinking and last week I had real difficulty with it. My wife has been telling me I must eat, but the whole process holds no enjoyment whatsoever. I'm still hoping that my sense of taste will return soon.
I have spoken with the pharmacist at my doctor's practice and he has said that he will recommend to the doctors in the practice that they read up on and tell patients of the debilitating effects of the taste loss problem - which will give the patient the chance, at the outset, to refuse Terbinafine as a treatment if they wish to.
I'll let you know when my taste returns.
