Everything tastes like soap!

Well, in the list of w/d symptoms, this one would not make the top, but for that last two weeks, I have this taste like soap in my mouth, and nothing tastes right.
Also a sort of pseudo-stomach upset.
I'm glad I've read there that others have had these things about taste too.
Sometimes my tongue feels weird too.
Anyone else?

Wanna join the club? NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Everything tastes like soap!

Thats a part of derealisation. Its common here. I had abnormal taste and smell sensations, too. I could smell foul meat or rotting carcass a few times, but noone else could smell it

Re: Everything tastes like soap!

For me it's been a metallic taste in my mouth and a weird feeling tongue. Doesn't hurt but is very irritating. My last dose of Paxil was on March 19th, and this would usually happen just about the time I would stabilize, so we'll see if it comes back again. I hope not!

Re: Everything tastes like soap!

Tonight, after about 10 days of tasting soap, it's changed to a bit of a salty taste.
NO food taste normal, or even worth eating.
Congrats on being paxil free Tez!

Re: Everything tastes like soap!

Sometimes I smell something burning when nothing is and sometimes at night I would swear I can taste blood in my mouth, just very vaguely but there's none there. No soap taste here though. Oh one thing I noticed is that centrum multivitamins give a real weird aftertaste a couple hours later if I haven't eaten anything else so maybe it could be something you are taking like that?

Re: Everything tastes like soap!

How many of you guys have amalgam fillings?

Re: Everything tastes like soap!

For a long time I had a taste in my mouth like dirty pocket change and I know that it wasn't from fillings because I don't have any - lol.

Re: Everything tastes like soap!

That's strange...........
My post dissapeared, so if it shows up twice, sorry!
My answers were that I don't have any amalgam fillings, and the only metel in my mouth is a gold/titanium/porcelain crown I paid big bucks for so it was non-toxic. Had all amalgam fillings removed about 15 yr. ago.
I do take vitamin/mineral supplements, same ones for the last 20+ yr. and they are all from natural sources, nothing sythentic. I also take 4000 IU fish oil, which was was wondering if after a year of it for w/d, should I lower it to 3000? And I take immunocal, which I don't know if it's doing any good. Seems like it used to help. There is an odd stomach upset with this taste, that's not like a 'usual' type stomach upset. I think it's more like I don't want to eat because stuff tastes so bad.
