Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Amoxicillin and loss of taste
This is part 2 of my earlier post today. Accidentally hit the submit when I was changing position. I am in good health apart from weight loss because of bing unable to taste things. All I seem to have is a variable salty taste. I joined the Fifth Sense for people who have lost sense of smell and or taste. Just loss of taste seems to be the more unusual. One of the members said they had been given Amoxicillin and it struck a chord I checked with my doctor and found that I had been prescribed Amoxicillin on 4 occasions prior to my loss of taste. Internet research shows this is not an unusual occurrence. So why is it not listed as a side effect to be aware of? Is there a way to mitigate the effects, does taste ever recover, is there anything to improve matters? Any advice?

I've taken amoxicillin for 7 days for acute sinusitis and asthma. After 4 or 5 days, I couldn't taste food properly, my tongue felt swollen and was and still is very sore. It's been making things very hard to think of foods to eat to keep my strength up as I just haven't fancied anything. I hope this situation soon changes and I can get back to normal!
