  • Celebrex and taste loss
    Following foot surgery, I have taken Celebrex for most of the last 4 months. I can no longer taste or smell. I just started a Z pack for a sinus problem and am hoping that will clear any infection that could be contributing to this loss. I have also stopped taking Celebrex in the meantime.

  • Loss of taste & recovery
    Condition appeared upon use of Simvastatin. Mostly corrected by liberal use of MSG.
