i took the medication for about 4 weeks total, about 2 days after i was finished, i lost my sense of taste or finally noticed it anyway, i thought i was just not liking food for a bit before that so i think it was gradual..but anyway, is there hope for it to come back completely?
I've been on it for 14 days in two separate periods about two months apart and I haven't noticed that so far. And I'm about to extend this most recent 14 day period for another 14 days. I'll be more observant this time. Have you checked the side affect notice that comes with the drug to see if taste is listed? (I haven't myself).
I'm on same drug for over two months now and about 3 weeks ago I've noticed salty flavour in my mouth and gradually lost my sense of taste. I didn't realise it's the drug that is causing the problem until I started googling it. First I thought it's just a cold (as I had one), second week I thought that maybe it's my new multivitamin and the 3rd week I started suspecting a stomach bug....I feel slightly sick all day long so I'm really scared it affected my liver too. I won't be taking it any more and will go to see my GP tomorrow but I'm really scared that I've permanently damaged my taste buds. Internet doesn't offer much hope. For some people it took months for taste to come back, quite a few lost it for good. Im getting slightly depressed as I've suffered with eating disorders for years and this is possibly the last thing I need at the moment! I finally started to enjoy my food and have a healthy relation with it and now I have to put up with this!
I'm not much help, I know, I'm sorry. I just wish my GP would worn me about this side effect.
I hope your taste will come back soon as you were really quick with stoping the drug!
