What Causes Loss Of Sense Of Smell And Taste?
Loss of taste and smell
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns
I am sorry to hear that you have lost your sense of smell and taste. This is a common condition and needs to be addressed by your primary care or neurologist. Lose of taste and smell can be due to a stroke, vitamin deficiency or unknown causes. You will need to have labs and CT scan or MRI of your head to see if there are any lesions or strokes that would account for the change. If there is a vitamin deficiency then replacement will allow your taste and smell to return. Unfortunately the most common cause of loss of taste and smell is unknown and there is no treatment. Your medications would not be the cause of this.
I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
