Taste salt in mouth
Jul 13, 2007

i have recently started on meds, Dapsone, Stocrin, and Truvada. Since taking the meds I have developed a constant salty taste in my mouth. Is this usual ???

Response from Dr. Henry

A salty taste due to one of the meds you are on (dapsone, Truvada, or Stocrin)is not usual but has been occasionally reported. Your HIV specialist should be aware of the complaint and exam your mouth/tongue next visit. KH
