Pregnant, taking prenatal vitamins, bad taste in mouth. Taking Synthroid. What could be causing these?

Hi, I am 11 wks pregnant and am taking prenatal vitiamins and have had a very bad taste in my mouth and I m not sure if it s from the prenatals...I ve switched them three times. However, I found out today that my TSH was off (in a long time), so my doc will have to increase my Synthroid .....could this be what is causing the bad taste in my mouth?

This type of bad taste or metallic taste could well be a normal early pregnancy symptom.
You should continue taking the prenatal vitamins prescribed.
Thyroid hormone difficiency generally will not cause this type of symptoms.
You should continue with thyroid medication and need to check throid again after 6 weeks for any dose adjustment.
Hope this is helpful
