Is Bad Taste a Side Effect of Fosamax?
Having been diagnosed with Osteoporosis, I have been taking Fosamax once weekly 70 mg tablets for the past 6 weeks. I am experiencing a bad taste and odd section on my tongue. Is this related to the medication?
I have not had that symptom mentioned to me before. Check to see if you have changed vitamins or other supplements. You can always stop the Fosamax for awhile and then restart it to see if it seems to be related.
