Weird taste from saliva, ulcers on gums, excessive thirst. Taking topamax, folic acid. Suggestions?
Over the past three weeks my saliva has tasted strange, almost a burning sensation and my gums have ulcerated a bit. I find myself wanting to drink more water. I thought it could be medicate by have gotten off for a week or so but still happening. I am taking topamax and was taking Deplin (folic acid). I also take estraiol and progesterone but have never had a problem with either.
