How long have you been on the Flagyl? It's famous for causing a nasty metallic taste in your mouth.

As far as the Imuran, it never gave me a taste in my mouth. Which, of course, in the fine tradition of this DD and our meds, doesn't mean it couldn't be giving you a bad taste.

I don't get any after-taste with Imuran.  I typically take it with a very diluted bottle of ensure, about 2 hours before going to bed.

prednisone gave me the worst metal taste, but Imuran never has. 
Currently in remission since September 2004!!!  I am on Imuran 150 mg and am LOVING life!
