I take over the counter meds for heartburn could that cause it??? I have taken it for a long time but recently changed to an off brand of Prilocec ???
Doctor: Dr. Mo, Board Certified MD replied 6 months ago
The most common cause of a bitter taste are new medications or even a change in brand. The second most common cause is anything they might contain pine nuts or pine nut ingredients. And finally the 3rd cause is a change in your bacterial flora. That can happen from a recent antibiotic use or change in diet.
