I took Wellbutrin for a long time, and never experienced what you are experiencing.
I checked the list of possible side effects and it is not listed and it has not been reported as of now.
I had that for about 2 days, asked the doctor and he said it would go a way, it did on the third.
Ask your doctor. My case may have been different.
I did!! I've taken Wellbutrin for a week (low dose, 100mg BID) and have just randomly gotten a funny, metallic taste in my mouth. First few days, in the morning, I has to ask my husband "did I make terrible coffee?" Coffee tastes fine now, but I did wake up in the middle of the night, last night, feeling like I'd sucked on a nickel! Nothing a glass of water or juice won't help with, though!
Yes! I've been on a 300mg dose for the last 3 weeks. I'd describe the flavor (and maybe smell?) as being similar to the chemical drying agent used by dentists in ceramic fillings.
Yes. At first i thought it was due to an antibiotic that i was on when i started wellbutrin. this particular antibiotic always gives me a metallic taste but after i finished the meds i still had the taste. I'm about 3 weeks in with the Wellbutrin and get that taste at least once a day. it's not quite as intense as with the antibiotic so i'm gonna tough it out.
I just googled if wellbutrin could cause a bad taste. Your question popped up and metallic is exactly what it is. Have you found anything that helps.
I have been on 300 mg of Wellbutrin for 1 month now. I’ve had a bitter taste in my mouth since I started taking it. Now Dr. upped the dosage to 400 mg a day. Have you experienced this and what did you do to make it better? Very thankful I haven’t experienced the canker sores others have talked about. Any help is appreciated.
I have chemical kind of taste when I eat certain foods and smoke cigarettes.
I have a bitter after taste. It's been going since I started the medicine.
I noticed it with the SR (purple? Tab) was later switched to the XL which are white tabs and no metallic taste. I even noticed the metallic genitourinary wise. I don't know if it was the dye/chemical formulary.
"Common (1% to 10%): Gustatory disturbance (concerned with tasting or the sense of taste)"
Yes, I did too. It lasted for three days and then stopped altogether.
I was on 150mg for 3 weeks & had the horrible taste in my mouth. Someone referred to it as a “drying chemical used in ceramic fillings. It would go away after a few hrs. My dosage was increased to 300mg a week ago.. the taste has gotten worse & doesn’t go away. Oh did I mention the extremely dry mouth? How much longer?
