I had a bad cough and ear infection about 3 ½ weeks ago. I was given Clarithromycin. I felt worse after 2 days (sinuses), so my dr. switched me to Sulfameth/tmp. We did not know if I had a virus, bacterial infection or allergies, so I was taking my prescription, plus Mucinex, plus allergy meds. About a week after I started on Sulfameth, I started feeling a very annoying, tingly sensation in the back of my mouth. Thinking it may be thrush (from the antibiotics), my dr. prescribed Nystatin. The day after I started it, the tingling went away, but I lost the sense of taste in my mouth. I also developed a weird sour taste in the back of my mouth. I completed the course of Sulfameth, and all other meds, last week, and STILL have no taste and the weird sour taste. This is the 12th day of this. I saw an ENT on Monday. He saw a slight coating, which he thought MIGHT be thrush, but it was not much. I have no other thrush symptoms. He also saw signs of reflux in my throat. He prescribed Diflucan and Nexium. That was 3 days ago, and still no improvement. I am very worried. Thank you!!
