Discussions that mention valium

General Health board

Can somebody please help me figure this out?

I've been having a bad taste in my mouth, most of the time. It has nothing to do with what I eat, and it's not a food taste. It's mettalic, bitter, like a pill. Sometimes it tastes plant-like, or even like a mineral.

The only medication I take is Valium, which isn't suppost to do this.

What could be causing the bad taste in my mouth?
Well, I found out that a bitter taste IS a minor side-effect for Valium. However, it's suppost to disappear once the body becomes "used to" the medication. I've been on Valium for about 10 years now, and I never had this problem before.

Maybe it's the antihistamine I've been taking, or my toothpaste...

A sinus infection is possible, I guess, and allergies have been a problem.
