Hello, this is Dr. David. I am reviewing your question now and will be with you momentarily.
sorry about your lack of taste.
90% of taste is smell. I'm sure your ENT doctors have checked your sinuses.
do you have runny nose or sinusitis or allergies which can cause sinus inflammation and loss of taste
zinc supplements can help restore taste as well.
there is data showing that zinc deficiency can cause loss of taste.
have you tried zinc supplements ?
Yes i have tried zinc zrytec daily for weeks and also sinus spray.
are you having sinus congestion?
you may need a course of antibiotics if you have a bacterial sinus infection.
are you using saline sinus spray? or a steroid sinus spray like Nasocort or Rhinocort?
I use Allegra 180mg daily. I find that works for allergies better than zyretc for me.
