Metallic Taste

These are descriptions of how individuals experienced various symptoms during withdrawal. While everyone's withdrawal is unique and symptoms will be different for everyone, it may be useful to know what others went through.

All withdrawal symptoms can be caused by things in addition to withdrawal. If a symptom is persistent or you are worried by it, it is always a good idea to get it checked out by your doctor to ensure nothing else is going on.


Definition: (n) A taste as of metal in the mouth


What I've Felt:

"You feel like someone has filled your mouth with copper pennies." - Matt


My Coping Strategies

bulletBrush your teeth often
bulletChew gum or suck on a hard candy to kill the taste
bulletAn additional coping strategy I found was to change whatever it was I was eating or drinking. For example, tap water had a terrible metallic taste for me so I changed to bottled spring water. - Cookie
