Biaxin bad taste in mouth

Common Questions and Answers about Biaxin bad taste in mouth


Avatar n tn Now I said I brushed my tongue and have for years but it dawned on me to also brush the sides of my tongue as well - that did the trick for me. No more bad taste. However, a metallic taste in the mouth can be due to a variety of causes - from medication you may be taking to dental problems. Not drinking enough water can contribute to problems with taste. Increase your intake of water and see if it helps.
Avatar n tn I remember having to take that once for bronchitis, and I remember it leaving a nasty taste in my mouth also. It was a very metallic taste to I had a mouth full of nickels!! Eewww...nasty stuff....but necessary! Chew gum...hard candy, maybe?
Avatar f tn I stopped the antibiotic yesterday and continue to have a constant mild abdominal pain accompained with severe hunger pains and occasional dizziness and now I'm noticing a metallic/foul taste in the back of my mouth. I also abruptly stopped having loose bowel movements and since discontinuing the antibiotic have found it hard to move my bowel. Can this be an ulcer? A dead stomach? Yeast in my gut?
Avatar n tn If the metallic taste does not subside, the next step is to pay a visit to the dentist as many problems with abnormal tastes in the mouth and/or halitosis (bad breath) can be associated with infection/inflammation of the gums. I hope this information is helpful and thank you for visiting the Family Practice Forum!
4939681 tn?1361302899 Biaxin is well known for causing a metallic taste in the mouth. It's not a herx or acid reflux. Every time I used it (and every time many other Lymies used it) that metallic taste stayed the entire course and never diminished. I guess there could be a few people who didn't have that taste----- but then, we're all different aren't we?
Avatar n tn And on days when it's really bad, my mouth has a metalic taste to it. The smell can often give me headaches. Here is what I have tried: Initially, I just started brushing, flossing, and gargling with Listerine constantly. That didn't work. Then i bought Saline Nasal Spray. That didn't work. Then I emptied the Saline out and refilled the bottle with Listerine. Yes... I sprayed Listerine up my nose. This can be painful. That didn't work.
Avatar m tn Another uncommon reason for a metallic taste in mouth is due to small electric currents in the mouth. When two types of metals are used in two different dental fillings a battery can be created. Some believe that it's due to the mercury leakage from dental silver/mercury fillings. Many oral or IV medications such as thyroid medicine, penicillin, and lithium can give a metallic taste in mouth.
Avatar n tn I am quite ashamed about this situation and have only told it to my mum, which she replies saying that she doesn't sense any bad smell. There is always a bad taste lingering in my mouth and i can feel that the taste is somehow coming out of my nose when i exhale. The smell becomes even more apparent when I am on an empty stomach and feeling hungry. There is always thick clear mucuos from the back of my nose and i have the habit of sniffing it down my throat and swallowing it all the time.
689528 tn?1364139441 Woke up this am with that metal taste in my mouth and remembered it's from the Biaxin the doctor gave me. (I forgot it gave me that the last time I had it and how bad it tastes). I have been also slightly nauseous. Maybe because of the meds?! 8DPO and soo worried of all this stuff I've been taking to get rid of this damn cold! Hopefully a little bean will be tough enough to stick!!
Avatar f tn sit down when I know it's coming. It happened tonight for the first time in a was a bad is hours later and I can still feel it..that weak shakey kinda feeling ... Please, if anyone finds an answer please repost and let us all know. Thanks!
Avatar n tn HI, i had a bad headache on one side and the next day it started again and my throat (not the inside) started hurting to the touch i took a nap and when i woke up i had teeth pain on one side of my mouth could'nt tell where the pain in my mouth was coming from it felt as if i had just had a tooth pulled can this be sinus
Avatar f tn At my last appt, my doc had me cycle the Tindamax, 3 weeks on, 3 weeks off. I was so glad to stop, as the chronic bitter taste in my mouth and the dark tongue went away. Well, now that I have cycled back on, both side effects are back. Yuck.
Avatar n tn Last September, I had the same thing - a very sour taste in the back of my throat. About a month before, I had really bad sinus drainage but cleared up. A couple weeks later, I started having this foul taste in the back of my throat. It felt like some kind of abcess or something around my lower tonsil area. I went to my MD and he said that it was "strep". I questioned him because I did not have a fever or even a sore throat.
4451049 tn?1387157037 Have you gotten what we lovingly call Biaxin Mouth yet? I remember that all too well. Sorta a metallic taste in your mouth. You sound as if you're very sensitive to medications.
Avatar f tn After I started taking the meds, I actually started to cough something, and twice it came up, but it was like chunks of blood. So gross, makes a gross taste in my mouth, and generally when I cough it sounds like I should be coughing something up but nothing actually comes up. Anyhow, I am still taking the medication, not sure why it made me cough blood, but we shall see what happens, I have all this medication for a week! Hopefully it works.
Avatar n tn Around day 8 I stopped the nebulizer bc it seemed to be making my cough worse. Plus it made me dizzy, exhausted, and a bad taste in my mouth that was hard to get rid of. So I just finished my round of antibiotics & now I have a terrible rash itchy as hell on my legs!! It's on my arms a little but not as bad as my legs! No matter what I do, change my clothes, wash, put cream on, cortisone, Benadryl cream, anything, it's still very itchy.
Avatar f tn sort of feeling), weird taste in my mouth, SORENESS in my mouth, and what feels like the beginning of cold sores around my mouth (a common first sign of my next "cold" episode - which makes me worry all this isn't working). Additionally, I am currently on Sprintec and for medical reasons have been on oral contraceptives since I was 15 (so about 11 years running).
Avatar f tn I was happy to do that. I hate the bitter, metallic taste in my mouth from it. Then, he realized my yeast wasn't clearing up after 4 weeks on Nystatin, so he said hold the Biaxin while I take 10 days of Diflucan. So last night, I took my first doses of Diflucan and Plaquenil. Within an hour I developed a really irritating sore throat and felt really out of it. I also had a return of my air hunger, the worst in at least 3 weeks.
1423392 tn?1286593990 It is my least favorite drug, as it gives me dark spots on my tongue (yeast + bad bacteria overgrowth) and a terrible metallic/bitter taste in my mouth. Thank goodness I am cycling it 3 weeks on, 3 weeks off. At least I know I'll get a break. And definitely no alcohol. Alcohol with Flagyl or Tindamax will make you very sick to your stomach. Not worth it.
Avatar m tn It began in 1976 and re occurs every 5 to 6 years. I get a sore throat (not tonsils but when you swallow) I now go straight on antibiotics and use Bricanyl inhaler although it doesnt seem to have much effect except to cause alot of mucus coughed up from the lungs. It causes me to have spasm coughing and if I cannot control this to 3 or 4 coughs my windpipe closes over making it hard to breath in or out.
Avatar m tn Some smells can come from having a bad mix of bacteria in the intestines, and somehow the smell comes out through the sinuses or lungs. The best solution that I have seen is The Schwarzbein Principle by Dr. Diana Schwarzbein, MD. 9. There is a disease called atrophic rhinitis, which involves the decay of the mucus membranes in the sinuses. I don’t know much about it, that’s what ENTs and Google are for. 10.
Avatar n tn because i dont want turbinate surgery but i cant sleep and breathe because they are swelling so bad and im getting worse cause my muscles,joints are achy. thanks in advance. any advice greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn Good to know other people are experiencing this "orange tongue' thing. I called my doctor and he said he had never heard of such a thing and didn't seem too worried. I am paranoid that I have stinky breath as a result. My husband says I don't but my 2 and 4 year are forever telling me "Mommy, your breath stinks!" Has any one else experienced bad breath or a bad taste in your mouth with this disorder?
Avatar m tn Probably got infected in August 1st by a girl . I even remember the taste of some kind of mint-like remedy on her mouth but she didn't tell me. She didn't seem to have suffered like I did. But her mom was in the hospital back then i think she had it too. Hope my family have had this before I don't want to infect them.
Avatar n tn I wondered if I had acid reflux but I don't have a sour taste in my mouth when I wake up not breathing and also it only happens the SECOND I'm dozing off and it seems like acid reflux would cause it to occur at any time when you're lying down or sleeping and even throughout the night. ? For some reason, sitting at the computer always makes me feel like I'm going to choke too. Must be holding my head in a certain position?
Avatar n tn ) My head was really foggy, felt so out of it (like i was barely existing), headaches, muscle aches, weird taste in my mouth, hot flashes (without fever) and the overall pain was nothing compared to feeling so out of it. The doctor did all kinds of tests and blood work, they all came back negative. He thought I was losing it but I didn't want to believe that so I went to a walk in clinic.
798555 tn?1292791151 Stomach upset/pain, nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, loss of appetite, headache, dizziness, trouble sleeping, fever, sweating, or a strange taste in the mouth may occur. If any of these effects persist or worsen, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly. Tell your doctor immediately if any of these unlikely but serious side effects occur: mental/mood changes (e.g., depression, anxiety), unusual weakness.
Avatar n tn I've heard of people smelling burning toast or marshmallows when they have a brain tumour but not this so I doubt it is what's wrong with you but I don't know for sure just haven't heard of this.
499534 tn?1328707778 Second, it's not really flu season anymore, so it's likely not to be that bad until next fall, with the next flu season. So far, only people in Mexico have died, and there is no evidence yet that they even had this flu, which isn't actually swine flu but a combination of four different strains of flu, only one being swine. So we don't know yet why in Canada and the US this is just a flu and in Mexico it's a killer.
Avatar n tn I am not a doctor but i know antibiotics kill all the good and bad bacteria in your body and who knows what else it distroys, probably a long food chain line in that too. but if i use some iniatitave with this i think if i go and buy some probiotics and take them a long with vitamine B and some calcium (known to have a calming effect on the nervous system) i should be right in a few weeks.
