Ok so week 6 of 1st Trimester I was nauseous until week week 14. I never threw up but in order for me to eat, and smile things I had to be put on Zofran. The best med there is I must say. Since week 14 I have been eating and drinking fluids with no problem. However I keep getting this weird taste on my tongue. I have to keep sugar free gum or candy, and even liquids, fruits or just a meal. These are the only things that give me relief. If I let the taste sit on my tongue long enough then I feel nauseous. I was asked if it's the taste of iron from my Prenatal Vitamins. It's hard to explain because when I take my vitamins it doesn't seem to compare and it's a taste that I notice all day everyday. What could this be????????????? Has anyone else had this problem????????????
I haven't personally had this issue but I can see how it would be very frustrating!! I know when I took Zofran, the taste on my tongue when it dissolved was not my favorite but it certainly didn't last all day. I hope this goes away for you - it doesn't sound pleasant! Have you asked your OB about it?
Diva-It's pretty common for medications to cause dry mouth and funny taste in the mouth...but it depends on the medication. I'd imagine that vitamins could do the same thing. I think it would be smart to give your OB a call and just run it by them. We want you to be healthy and feel good,
I agree with Jess! It couldn't hurt to give your doctor a call and run it by her!
