When I eat I can't taste anything, sweet, salty etc? Is this normal? Sometimes it's hard to swallow because the lack of saliva in my mouth.
You can view a comprehensive list of side-effects for Imuran here: https://www.drugs.com/sfx/imuran-side-effects.html
Although not listed in the above link I have read that Azathioprine (Imuran)
may be responsible for a change in sense of smell and taste. It is usually mild and short lived. See your doctor if it is bothersome.
I have been on Imuran 50mgs daily since April 20, 2012. Not only do things taste funny but some food smells funny too. I have no appetite. I wanted you to know you are not alone with this issue. I will question my dr at the end of the week. I was diagnosed with AIH feb2012. I am also in the process of tapering off prednisone. Take care!
After taking Imuran for a week. I could not taste lemon or salt. I literally put some salt on my tongue and tasted NOTHING. funny thing is ... at first I thought it was my wife's cooking! I hope this magical effect goes away... Otherwise I have to hire someone to explain to me how good my wife's food tastes.
