Hi,
There are a few conditions in which there is a sweet taste in the mouth-
  • Diabetes - If you are already a patient of diabetes then your sugar levels might be elevated, or you might be starting with diabetes if not already suffering from it. In either case you need to get your blood sugar levels tested.
  • Sinusitis - If you are a patient of sinusitis, then that can cause a bad or sweet taste in mouth
  • Acid reflux can also cause such symptoms in the morning.
I would advise you to consult your doctor to rule out diabetes and treat you for acid reflux or sinusitis if present.

Thanks for accepting the answer.
Prilosec is a good medicine for Acid reflux. But sometimes besides medication the reflux can worsen. A combination of medicines is need in that case. Also you need to be investigated for presence of high blood sugars.
