Brief Answer:
The most likely cause for the dysgeusia is Coversyl.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query.

1. Out of the above four medications, Coversyl (Perindropril) is the most likely medication that is causing the dysgeusia.

2. Request your physicians to review this medication, to suggest a substitute or to add another anti-hypertensive medication to effectively lower the dose of Coversyl.

3. This should decrease the dysgeusia. Remember to get your Blood Urea Level (BUL) and Serum Creatinine levels checked.

I hope that I have answered your query. If you have any more questions I will be available to answer them.

Regards.
