Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 months ago):
6 weeks ago, while on a program of prednisone reduction, my taste and appetite disappeared. All food tastes like cardboard. Prednisone was increased again about 3 weeks ago, however, appetite and taste remains gone. Any suggestions?
From this study (3 months ago):
Been going on for about 1 week. No insurance so I can't go to doctor right now. Did recently recover from strep throat, by using Amoxicillin. I also drank grapefruit juice and orange juice while sick, while taking all above medications. Any suggestions?
From this study (4 years ago):
adding the synthroid has made me feel much worse
