Hi everyone, I’ve been on Sertraline for 2 weeks now and have lost my sense of taste and smell completely. Has anyone else experienced this? Thanks
Loss of smell and taste on Sertraline - Action on Postpar...
Thank-you for your message.
I was on Sertraline in combination with other medication when I was diagnosed with Postpartum Psychosis in 2015. I’m not sure if you have had postpartum psychosis, so our experiences might be a bit different.
I don’t remember it affecting my taste, but I did have other side effects that lasted for a few weeks when I started the medication, but they did settle down. Although I know everyone’s experiences on medication can be different.
Please do talk to someone about the side effects if they are worrying you.
Take care and I hope things settle for you,
