Hello,

Welcome to health care magic forum.

Thanks for sharing your concern with us.

Tab.AGRONOX can cause itching,swelling of tongue.

Since you are experiencing altered taste sensation,please do visit your Physican and get the medicine replaced.

Meanwhile,maintain oral hygiene well.

Avoid spicy foods.

Brush and floss your teeth as well as tongue daily.

Hope this helps.
