Detailed Answer:
Dear sir, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but there are various reasons that can cause tinny taste in your mouth..
for example, many medications can cause tinny taste as a side effect including antibiotics such as tetracycline, clarithromycin and metronidazole.. Also blood pressure medication as captopril , antigout drugs as allopurinol and antipsychotics can cause this side effect ..
Vitamin supplement that contain zinc , copper or chromium can lead to metallic taste in your mouth as well.

My taste buds changed drastically about 6 weeks ago after taking zinc for a cold . If anything, it is getting worse. The worst thing to eat or drink is anything with sugar. Any thoughts on what this could be or if it is even related to the zinc?
