Last week I underwent a centuple bypass. Plavik and Oxycodone/APAP were perscribed.

I now have a taste disorder which I have not been able to get information about.

Sweets take on a bad copper taste in my mouth. I had dies added introvenously during a catherization and a kidney ultrasound.

Do you know which drug or drugs are doing this? Is it temporary?

It seems that neither of the drugs Plavix (Clopidogrel) and Oxycodoneare i have seen reported to cause copper taste in the mouth. It is possible that this effect is temporary and may manifest through another cause.
