... will it last? I just started taking 50mg/day and will increase the dose to 100 mg/day after one week. I'm concerned that it will continue and I won't be able to keep taking this medicine because I can't stand the metallic taste. It was prescribed for anxiety, panic attacks and depression.
Andej,,, Don't really see anything about a metallic taste, It does say like dry mouth,and fruit like taste in mouth but most the stuff to do with the mouth says it goes away if it were me prior to the dose increase if its still a problem check with the doctor first and maybe try and drink a little extra water in the mean time could be just taste buds or something messing with you..good luck Chuck1957
Are you taking it with food? Maybe try that. I've been taking sertraline for over 10 years but never had an after taste like that. Also, are you taking other medications with it? Maybe try taking them at different times if that's the case.
Last thing I can think of is try taking it at night instead of morning or the other way around depending when you take it.
Just my opinion.
Good luck & I hope it resolves for you.
