i had my taste and smell before i was put on citalopram and then lost both taste and smell. this happen 3 years ago. i was in a state of depression because i lost my son to brain cancer.
Go to an ENT at a big clinic. Ask for the one who specializes in taste and smell. This is common and often is temporary. I have been on prednisone for eight years and lost those senses. Once the dose came down to a lower level it all came back. My doctor would never say something that removes hope. One can't know, just guess.
Will be interested in what you find. Your onformation could be very helpful for others. Hang in there. Laren
