182493 tn?1348056515 I was on Lunesta for sleep up until about a month ago. I took it for over a year. The taste in your mouth is horrid, but it goes away after a few weeks. I ate chocolate ice cream to help get the taste out of my mouth, if only for a few minutes. That's funny about what you (or someone) said about the butterfly floating around in the t.v.
Avatar f tn I've been on lunesta, probably 5 times a week for 6 months now. Metallic taste happens in the beginning or if I don't take it for a couple days. I agree, it is super gross but if you drink Gatorade instead of water at night, you won't taste it.
Avatar m tn Does Lunesta leave an awful taste in your mouth? I just started taking it this past week, and if has left this bitter, chrome sort of taste in my mouth. It lasts pretty much the entire day until I take my nightly dose. It is really really gross. And I think I would give up taking the drug if it continues. Has anyone else had this problem. Does it go away? The med really works great for me, but this issue is really irritating.
Avatar n tn Are you aware of a constant bitter taste in mouth because of anti-depression meds? I take several at different times of the day on a regular basis........could Effexor be the culprit? It seemed to have started some time around the inclusion of Effexor, but I am not sure that is what is causing the constant bitter taste. I am not now nor have I recently been on an antibiotic. It is not a dental problem. Any incite you could give me would be appreciated.
192332 tn?1189759428 I started on lunesta.have anyone had a weird like metal taste in your mouth from it and did it work good?I hope it works.26 bucks for 14 pills.WOW!
Avatar f tn I started it on Sunday, and am wondering if what I have going on is caused from the Lunesta or something else.....Having mood swings, depression, light headedness, bad taste in mouth (that started first day!), some confusion (more so then just being a normal mom with little ones :). Thanks!
199980 tn?1233801004 just wondering if any other ms patients here ever experience a metallic taste in your mouth. the only other time i have ever experienced this is when I received steroids. I have been off steroids for 5 months now. this started about a week ago and it is just awful. nothing taste right and it's very annoying. I'm not on any new drugs so I don't believe it is a side effect of anything. just wondering if anyone else has has this as a symptom. thanks for your time.
Avatar n tn Some meds can cause a taste in the mouth when they're being metabolized (I take Lunesta once in a while...a sleep med...and it has a metallic residual taste).
1028079 tn?1267069221 Months ago I lost mine. And the only taste I do have is a metalic taste in my mouth. I have no dental issues or acid reflux. I mentioned this to my doc and she said could be side affect from the Cymbalta. Anyone heard of this or experienced it?
Avatar m tn Since starting i have noticed that i wake up with dry mouth and when i eat everything has no taste and i have the same taste or feeling in my mouth no matter what i eat. I asked the nurses and they tell me they have never heard of that and its not the methadone. Am i imagining this or has anyone else had this issue? Also my teeth hurt and i noticed that they are wearing flat on the top, Is this all a side effect of the drug?
Avatar f tn Lunesta. Feeling. Stomach upset, weird taste in mouth and gut issues. Pain from CRPS HAS RETURNED SINCE I DONT TAKE MY PAIN MANAGEMENT MEDS TOGETHER.
182493 tn?1348056515 I take Lunesta too.. not everyone gets the taste in their mouth and it is supposed to go away. I didn't get it.. I am lucky I hear its awful. I find it works well.. it costs me 70 for 15 pills so it better work right??
Avatar f tn Lunesta ***** and leaves a god awful taste in your mouth
Avatar n tn i liked the lunesta, but could not stand the taste it left in my mouth...At first i did not know why i had that taste, then read about it online...the taste stayed with me until the next day... i now use sonata some times..
Avatar f tn i never had the bad taste in my mouth though..i got that from lunesta taht is the most rancid i would ever get ever..a metallic hell in my mouth..
Avatar n tn Sometimes (very very rare) i get a taste of blood or iron at the evening in my mouth. When i am a little bit dizzy from alchohol i don't itch at all. So it is 99% nerves stuff... I had a hives when i was younger 2 years ago i was working on sun (summer) a lot for 2 months. I had HEAD & FOOT alergy. Since then this is periods. I had jaundice when i was a baby.. 2 years ago in our city, very near my home, a industry for making some sort of plastic have been made.
177003 tn?1266273955 Has anyone ever experienced a metal taste in their mouth after the w/d symptoms are gone for the most part?? I still have some depression but I expected that. Another thing is my vision seems a little blurred and I never had that problem before either. Any ideas would be appreciated. Take Care.......
454795 tn?1205939919 I took lunesta myself, and it also gave me a horrible taste in my mouth, but that's one of the side effects of the lunesta. my husband took it b4 & he didnt have the bad taste, but i sure did! it was ughhh, but i fell asleep shortly after!!!
Avatar f tn my eyes were killing me and i was losing focus. I felt like the earth was sucking me in. i have that bitter taste in my mouth but i think my head is more clear after getting a 5 hour slightly broken block of sleep with almost 2 hours before that. i also took Melatonin, which only put me to sleep at 9am and i came raging out of that sleep by 11pm...then i waited until 1 when i FINALLY gave in to a Lunesta after looking at the clock for 2 hours, praying and meditating and positive self talk.
Avatar n tn My burning smell was caused by hypothyroidism and I also had an acid taste in my mouth. I had this for a couple of years and of course was told it was in my head and put on antidepressants. When I started talking Eltroxin for my thyroid the smell went away along with many other unexplained symtoms.
Avatar n tn Lunesta though effective causes weird nightmares on waking up. Lunesta is also seen to cause a very nasty metallic taste in mouth after intake. You should consult your healthcare physician for advise on which drug would suit you better . Do write in if you need any additional information.
605114 tn?1252111996 except that my head space might be a little better. i thought i'd be the exception since i used to metabolise it so quick. and i'm so tiny in the body, with not a lot of fat cells on me, i thought... oh, by 2 weeks i'll be A-OK. but i'm not and it's doing me right in. my body is uneasy. i'd like to just take it off for a bit and leave it behind. i wish i was a meditation master, leave my body for a few hours..... i'm pretty shaky in the hands this morning.
182493 tn?1348056515 We will look back on it months from now and laugh. Ok, maybe years. Lunesta made my mouth taste like sh*t the next day, the WHOLE day. Hope u don't get that side-effect! Talk.
232264 tn?1191252080 I know I've seen a lot of ppl writing about Lunesta having a funny/bad taste. I've been taking the Lunesta for over 3 months now, everynight, and I have never experienced a bad taste. I was just having trouble staying asleep since I had my back surgery. I think it works wonderfully at fixing my problem, but I will say I have experienced a couple of the "not likely, but possible" side effects from it.
486038 tn?1300066967 The only side effect from Lunesta that I know is it leaves most people with a metallic taste in their mouth - especially noticeable when you drink water.
Avatar m tn I have Lunesta for sleeping but it taste so bitter and leaves a really bitter taste in my mouth, and I sleep so deep and I will usually have some kind of dreams. I hope you can figure it out jd.
