Drug-induced taste disorders.


Taste and smell are critical components to a person's overall sense of well-being and quality of life. Taste related problems can cause pain and discomfort and can hinder the maintenance of a satisfying and nutritious diet. Loss of taste interferes with pleasure derived from food and food-related activities. Many drugs can affect this special sense and contribute significantly to the morbidity of the associated illness. This article gives a brief account of this problem and emphasizes the need for more awareness of the clinicians about this problem.
