please I hope someone is experiencing the bitter taste on there tongue, i can't tell if it is the pred or imuran or the after flare of cd in my mouth, the canker sores are gone, my throat has calmed down,the taste really sucks, I can't tell if it's on my tongue or just my mouth in general. I've been on the two med's for around 2 weeks now. at first i thought it was the food but now. Iam %95 vegan. am i nuts or what

hey artist guy, I had a bitter metallic taste in my mouth the whole past week but I was also on antibiotics (biaxin). But now that that's out of my system I'm back to normal. I'm on pred and imuran too. Feel better!

Prednisone has a horrible taste that lingers. The only way I can avoid it is if I take it with Ensure, which has a thick texture and strong flavor to mask and coat it.

probably the pred.
I've been on Imuran for 2 years - no taste from it.
good luck. maybe sucking on a hard candy would help?

I am on prednisone right now and have been experiencing something similar, like a sour taste in the back of my mouth.  I am also mostly vegan, mainly for Crohn's issues while I am having a flare, but have started more of a macrobiotic diet so have been eating fish (no meat or dairy though).
