Garlic Taste In Mouth. Taken Medication, No Improvement. Suggestions?

Hi,
I have had a garlic like taste in my mouth for two+ weeks. I assume that it is acid reflux, although I have not had much heartburn.
I have switched from 150mg ranitdine twice a day to omeprazole 20mg in AM and ranitdine 150mg in PM. I have also tried "Tums" and "Pepcid Complete" (in place of the ranitdine). There has been no improvement.
Any suggestions?
