  • Celebrex and taste loss
    (Posted by a 58 year old woman who has Loss Of Taste, and takes Celebrex)
    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
    (Posted by a 73 year old man who has Loss Of Taste, and takes Simvastatin)
    Condition appeared upon use of Simvastatin. Mostly corrected by liberal use of MSG.

  • Plavix and miscarriage
    (Posted by a 46 year old woman who has Miscarriage, Stent Placement, History Of Deep Vein Thrombosis, and takes Plavix, Levothyroxine Sodium, Valtrex, Aspirin)
    I have had two miscarriages in the past two years. Both were at 5 weeks 3 days gestation. My doctors think it was my age and not the result of any of my drug regimen.
