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?
