Could Mac treatment cause food to taste bad?
I have been on antibiotics for MAC for 6 weeks-the big 3 on MWF. I have 0 appetite and food doesn’t taste good. Sometimes my tongue burns and mouth feels dry. Is this common?

Cuccmbers are a cooling food also.
Hello Irene. I was curious about whether you have been able to put some weight back on?
Onana, I had the burning tongue for yrs. It drove me up the wall. I too ate yogurt to soothe it. I am happy to report that it has gone away for the most part. I do have food triggers that will bring it back on though. The main one is wine, more than one glass will cause the burning. If I eat red tomatoe sauce, that will bring it on also. Just thought I'd let you know that there is hope that you will be rid of it some day.
@windwalker Hi Terri. I have been able to put back about 5 pounds. Irene
@windwalker Thanks for letting me know that your experience with burning tongue finally let up. I've had the same aggravation from wine and tomato sauce, plus all citrus, and a few other acidic foods. It's encouraging to hear there may be an end to this and a bit more relaxation around food.
