Hi: I've been taking Metroprolol Tart 25 MG since 8/24/15. The only other meds I take are Armour Thyroid 60 MG and Atorvastatin 40 MG. I will be 70 in September. I have noticed within the last few months that I can basically taste salty and sweet, no other differences in the taste of what I'm eating. It feels as though my tongue is numb from the tip to about halfway up. Most of what I taste is on the back sides of my tongue. Hope this doesn't sound too strange--thought I'd share.

I used Listerine total care for 2 months. Yesterday I realized I had no taste on the tip and middle of my tongue. I haven't used the Listerine for 24 hours, and still have no taste. Is this permanent?
Since starting Tamiflu 4 days ago my teeth have become very sensitive to the point that it takes 30-60 min for throbbing to subside. I have excellent oral health and don't know if this is due to the fever or is a side effect of the Tamiflu.
