More detail would be nice...I am also a physician and have not been able to find anything that supports your 3 to 4 weeks...and it has already been 6 weeks


thx!

Hello Jil,
I have seen in my practice that normally it take 4 weeks for the sense of smell to come back.While taste becomes better in 3 weeks time.However,have never seen (and also have not read )permanent loss of both after taking Biaxin.So its temporary loss in short .
