We reviewed the current literature (1980–1990, 1991–1996) concerning drugs associated with anosmia, hyposmia, dysgeusia, parageusia, and ageusia, and the impact of these adverse effects. Case reports of patients with sudden and delayed onset of one of these disorders with evidence for implication of a drug were included. Disturbances of taste and smell among the elderly and chronically ill, including those with thermal injury, decreases interest in eating and secondarily impairs healing of… Expand
Treatments for smell and taste disorders: A critical review.
  • R. Doty
  • Medicine
  • Handbook of clinical neurology
  • 2019
TLDR
A review of the strengths and weaknesses of more than two dozen approaches to treatment that have been suggested for a wide range of taste and smell disorders finds that many chemosensory disorders, if present for any period of time, cannot be reversed. Expand
Drug-Induced Taste Disorders
TLDR
The limited data available suggest that large differences exist among individuals in terms of their susceptibility to taste-related adverse effects, and that sex, age, body mass and genetic variations in taste sensitivity are likely involved. Expand
Neurological aspects of taste disorders.
TLDR
The scope of this review from a neurological viewpoint is to alert physicians to the problem of taste disorders and to help in the diagnosis. Expand
Medication‐Induced Taste Disturbances
TLDR
Clinicians should be proactive in identifying patients with taste alterations and in responding with appropriate interventions and management of taste disorders often includes discontinuation of the suspected offending agent. Expand
Re-establishment of olfactory and taste functions
  • A. Welge-Lüssen
  • Medicine
  • GMS current topics in otorhinolaryngology, head and neck surgery
  • 2005
TLDR
It is very difficult to predict the improvement of olfactory function using surgery, moreover, the long term - success in surgery is questionable, and therapy consists of topical and systemic steroids, whereas systemic application seems to be of greater value. Expand
Metallic Taste: An Unusual Reaction to Botulinum Toxin A
  • C. Murray, N. Solish
  • Medicine
  • Dermatologic surgery : official publication for American Society for Dermatologic Surgery [et al.]
  • 2003
TLDR
This is the first known report of dysgeusia after BTX-A, and physicians and patients may be reassured that the taste alteration was self-limited and was not significantly problematic for the patient in this case. Expand
Effect of Tricyclic Antidepressants on Taste Responses in Humans and Gerbils
TLDR
The differential suppression of other tastes by tricyclic antidepressants at the level of the taste receptors may contribute to the clinical reports of dysgeusia and hypogeusIA. Expand
Adverse drug reactions in the mouth.
TLDR
The present report details the more common and significant adverse oral consequences of drug therapy and, when relevant, provides sources of other suitable reports; it does not include details of the oral side effects of foodstuffs, tobacco, alcohol, or recreational drugs, nor the adverse effect of drugs upon the dentition. Expand
The role of zinc in the treatment of taste disorders.
TLDR
The article presents some promising patents on the role of zinc in the treatment of taste disorders, and it appears that medicines of the zinc-containing supplement type contribute to the treatmentof taste disorders caused by zinc deficiency. Expand
Effects of drugs on olfaction and taste.
TLDR
Among the "risks" in a risks/benefits discussion with a patient regarding the use of a new medication, alterations in olfaction and taste appear to play an increasingly recognized role. Expand

Drug-Induced Taste and Smell Disorders
TLDR
Treatment primarily requires restoration of normal sensory receptor growth, development and/or function and requires correction of steps initiating receptor and other pathology and includes zinc, theophylline, magnesium and fluoride. Expand
A double blind study of the effects of zinc sulfate on taste and smell dysfunction
TLDR
Although results demonstrate abnormalities of zinc metabolism in some patients with taste and smell dysfunction they fail to provide evidence for a single, therapeutic approach to the many disorders which are associated with abnormalities of taste and sense, the methods and procedures developed demonstrate that taste and taste dysfunction can be studied in a quantitative, systematic manner.

Smell and taste disorders, a study of 750 patients from the University of Pennsylvania Smell and Taste Center.
TLDR
A study of 750 patients with complaints of abnormal smell or taste perception from the University of Pennsylvania Smell and Taste Center, Philadelphia suggests that chemosensory dysfunction influences quality of life. Expand
Diagnosis and management of taste disorders and burning mouth syndrome.
TLDR
There is no proven intervention to either enhance taste acuity or abolish dysgeusia and low doses of tricyclic antidepressants may be effective in some patients with idiopathic oral burning, and spontaneous remissions without intervention have been reported. Expand
ACE inhibitors in hypertension: assessment of taste and smell function in clinical trials.
TLDR
Three quantitative methods for evaluating taste and smell function are described, together with the results of a pilot study aimed at evaluating the potential ease of application of these techniques in a larger group of patients. Expand

TLDR
The use of chlorhexidine is indicated in developmentally disabled, medically compromised patients, and in dependent elderly populations, since these groups are often physically unable to remove plaque by mechanical means. Expand
Changes in taste associated with intravenous administration of pentamidine.
TLDR
The data suggest that healthcare providers need to assess for the unpleasant taste associated with i.v. pentamidine and develop appropriate management strategies. Expand
[Taste disturbance as an initial manifestation of Guillain-Barré syndrome in a 14-year-old girl].
TLDR
A 14-year-old girl who showed taste disturbance as an initial manifestation of Guillain-Barré syndrome after an upper respiratory infection was reported and an increase of memory T cells in the peripheral blood and an elevated level of myelin basic protein in the cerebrospinal fluid was revealed. Expand
[Disorders of the sense of smell and taste].
TLDR
Disorders of olfaction and taste are infrequent, but a complete loss of smell or taste reduces the quality of life significantly and sophisticated examination of this sense can contribute to their early diagnosis. Expand
Dissociated taste disorder.
TLDR
This investigation used the filter-paper disc method, invented for clinical qualitative and quantitative gustometry by taste examination, and confirmed true dissociated taste disorder in 12 patients only with respect to sweetness, while no dissociate taste disorder was found for the other types of taste.
