Did anyone have a salty, metallic taste in mouth from Wellbutrin?

Hello,

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.

Take care,

Forgot, inform your Dr. about what you are experiencing.

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!
