Metalic taste in mouth


So lately I have had a weird symptom when there is an amount of pressure on one side of my head I also get a strange metallic bad taste in my mouth the pressure feels really bad like the vice sensation.And the taste in my mouth is really bad.Has anyone else experienced this?


My first thought is whether or not you’ve had any change to any medication or supplement?



well I thought that to im on fluoxetine for ocd and depression but I don’t think that’s causing the pressure maybe the weird taste?


From the FDA: Could Fluoxetine cause Metallic taste? We studied 44716 Fluoxetine users who have side effects from FDA and eHealthme. Among them, 214 have Metallic taste.

Google fluoxetine strange taste for more details and several different reports.

Hi, I suffer with migraines, had this symptom of tasting metal too, it bothered me so much I went to my Dr. No matter what I did I couldn’t stop the metal taste in my mouth. I thought maybe my fillings were causing it. I was tested for 3 metals, lead being one. The levels were normal. Never figured out was caused it. Tina
