I just started taking Biaxin and have a nasty metallic taste in my mouth from it? Anybody have any ideas on how to combat this problem, or do I need to invest in a lot of mints? It was the worst waking up in the middle of the night. Yuck!

Thanks in advance,

Drink lots of water, suck on sugar free mints, and chew gum. I found it bothered me less when i kept my mouth moist. If I got dry then the taste waste was bad.

As sammy said, drink water every time it bothers you (constantly, I know!). Remember that even sugar free candy or gum can grow yeast.

Someone said potato chips helped, but that is not so good either!!

I used water myself.

I was told that killing bacteria releases heavy metals. I'd add a binder for heavy metals. The archives are full of information about how to bind heavy metals. I use biopure microsilica.

Eventually you won't notice the taste. Seriously. The taste was so horrible in the beginning it would wake me up at night.

Thanks for all the ideas. Unfortunately I have to report that I ended up having a bad "digestive" reaction to Biaxin, and need to wait until my next LLMD appt to get another 2nd antibiotic. Uggh...
