What causes bitter taste in the mouth?
Dyspepsia very likely due to an acid peptic problem.
Thanks for the query.
Heartburn and acid reflux occurs when acid or other stomach contents back up into your esophagus, the long tube that carries food from your mouth to your stomach. Sometimes, acid reflux causes a sour taste in your mouth. It could be due to either your food habits or taking a higher amount of Floricet a day.
However, as the onset is acute, most likely reason is food.
Right now I don’t feel you need to worry too much.
Take Omeprazole 40 mg (it's OTC) twice daily for 3 days. Its a proton pump inhibitor and would neutralize the acid in the gastrointestinal tract.
Take an over the counter probiotic once daily.
Please have simple and vegetarian home cooked diet for 3 days.
If things don't improve after 3 days of treatment then we would consider other possibilities.
Let me know if I could assist you further.
