  • Patricia on Aug, 21, 2010:

    I had a heart attack on June 25, 2010. Had 2 drug eluting stents put in during MI. I have been taking Plavix and Metoprolol since and have in the past 3 weeks or so noticed a loss of taste. No metallic taste, just food has no flavor.

You may be interested at these reviews (what is this?):

  • 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.

  • Plavix and miscarriage
    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.
