Taste Perversion with Celebrex
Oct 13, 2000
I have been taking Celebrex 200 mg once per day for pain associated with the Achilles tendon where it inserts into the calcareus. I am noticing a bitter coppery taste in my mouth, which increases with food, but generally is there all the time. I note in one of the side effects of Celebrex, the term "taste perversion". Can I manage this ?
Response from Dr. Young
We have seen taste perversion with Celebrex rarely. No good remedies, but you might try changing from Celebrex to a cousin drug, Vioxx instead.
