Sulfa drugs and loss of taste

My doctor prescribed sulfameth trimeth for cellulitis about 3 weeks ago. I took the drug as prescribed for 10 days, but after about 5 days, I got this nasty metallic taste in my mouth and basically EVERYTHING I ate tasted horrible. I stopped taking the drug after the 5 days, called the drug store, but they said that they've never heard of such a thing.

Well, 2 weeks have went by and now I've all but lost my sense of taste. I'm tempted to call the doctor. Anyone else have this problem on sulfa drugs??
