Hello, I am an oncology nurse and I copy and pasted off a site called Chemocare.com. It is a fabulous site that discusses this drug. I attached a link regarding suggestions for taste changes. I hope this helps. Carm RN.
Taste changes from cancer or chemo treatments:
•If you have a lack of appetite because you have lost your sense of taste from chemo treatment, you may want to try adding different seasonings to your foods.
•If you have a bad taste in your mouth, try sucking on hard candies/mints or chewing gum. Also, keep your mouth clean by brushing at least two times per day and rinsing your mouth out with water between meals/snacks.
