Metallic taste

This is my first post so apaologies if in wrong section. For 5 weeks now i have had a metallic taste in my mouth particularly when eating. I have recently 4 days ago stopped taking Prozac as i heard it was a possible cause I am now on Citalopran. I also been using a copper bracelet for the effects of arthritis. Could either of these be a cause, if not could someone point me in the right direction I am losing weight because eating is not enjoyable owing to the taste, thankyou Geoff UK

Re: Metallic taste

that has happened to me before too. It is really irritating when you taste the fork or spoon when you are eating. Yuck! Anyway, I never saw a dr about it, but I have heard that it could be realated to anemia. could you be iron deficient or low? I border anemia sometimes.

Re: Metallic taste

I was told by a doctor it can be related to diabetes. I also would get it the day after I drank A LOT (acetone breath). Which unfortunately was many days.
Oh and I forgot to mention....I also got it when anorexic....
