I have been on this med now for 2 months. I am getting heartburn and the feeling of an elephant standing on my chest. I am wondering if the metal taste I am having is also a side effect?
Hello waytoomanykatz! Welcome to the site. Sounds like you have a housefull! Sorry no one has answered your question. I have not heard of this as a side effect, but if you seriouly think it is you can report it to the FDA hotline at 1-800-332-1088. They appreciate all side effects that were in the clinical trails so they can get that info out to others taking this med. I am giving you alink to read about salsalate. How's the tummy doing on it? I have heard it's pretty hard on the stomach. I have arthritis severly too, & can't tke NSAIDS at all. I wish you the best, & again so sorry no one answered you before now..
Oh gad, I was just doing a Search for "salsalate metalic taste" and found myself on this page. The past 2 days I've been having an increasing metalic taste in my mouth and burning from my stomach to the lower half of my throat, along with a heavy feeling. Jeepers, no sooner will I go to the emergency room and they'll start looking for cardiac problems. I pray that you're all right. As for me, I'm going to Urgent Care.
