    I am having dysgeusia I think after taking azithromycin for 5 months..
    I can’t taste salt and sugar well..
    Anyone having this problem? I am not taking azithromycin now since Sept 17th, as my doc said to not take it to see..
    I am very worried that I might not be able to taste the food right forever..
    It has been 10 days since I have not taken the med, but it feels like I am not tasting the food right more and more.. (almost no taste for salt and sugar)
    Or is it side effect for minocycline? I am taking it for twice a day.
    I am very worried.. will my taste be back?

    My taste was always altered taking Zithromax and it always came back.

    Hi Stiffy1,

    How long did it take your taste to come back?
    I have taken azithromycin for about 5 months and it has been about 11 days since I have not taken it but I can’t still taste the food right..

    Thankfully, I only took the 5 day pack each time and my taste was restored after several days of stopping. I could see five months taking longer respectively. Do not give up hope.
