I have googled and not found much regarding side effects to iron infusions.
I had one yesterday and today I have the weirdest - unpleasant - taste in my mouth. I've brushed, I've drunk water, I'm swished with mouthwash, it's still there.
Any connection? Obviously not a huge deal but I just wondered if it rang a bell with anyone. I do wonder if it's affecting my breath? Makes me self conscious to talk to anyone! =)

A metallic taste is a side effect ( ). I can't remember if I had it though, it's been awhile since I had an infusion.

Oh, and don't worry, it doesn't make your breath bad :-).
