Metallic taste may be a side effect of certain medications. Metallic taste is a taste disorder medically known as dysgeusia. It is an abnormal or impaired sense of taste or an unpleasant alteration of taste sensation.
It is usually described as a persistent metallic, sour, bitter, or other unusual, bad taste in the mouth. Metallic taste can develop suddenly or over more extended periods and may even affect the taste of foods, leading to changes in appetite and eating habits.
There are over 500 medications that may cause metallic taste or other taste alterations as a side effect. Medicine can cause a metallic taste because the body absorbs the medication and is released into the saliva. Some common medications that cause dysgeusia include:
Unfortunately, metallic taste can decrease your overall health and even your quality of life due to changes in nutrition. With metallic taste, even your favorite foods can taste unpleasant, leading to poor nutrition. Since it may cause an aversion to particular food, people tend to eat less or make poor nutrition choices.
To mask the unpleasant taste caused by dysgeusia, people often choose to eat spicier, saltier, or overly sweet foods. As a result of this, sodium and sugar intake often increase. These changes may lead to health complications or cause additional health problems.
One study showed that some dysgeusia patients began drinking an excessive amount of water. This creates a higher risk for polyuria (production of large volumes of urine), incontinence, and falls for the elderly.
