From this study (4 weeks ago):
I'm taking biaxin and neurontin and was wondering if these two together or one of them seperate is causing me to have my tongue feel like the skin has been scorched off. So when I drink soft drinks it makes my tongue feel like I'm actually drinking acid. I also have a bad taste in my mouth, as if I have been sucking on an aspirin. Augmenin made my mouth do this as well.
