Not sure who gave me the name of a prescription called caboncistene to help me regain my total loss of smell. I did research it n there are many drugs i am unable,to take due to having many bleeding ulcers n a transfusion. And the medicine suggested sounded like a life saver but i am unable to take it.

I couldn't smell for months. Not even toxic fumes! I have asthma so took steroids for two weeks along with a month of antibiotics. I can finally smell! Do you have inflammation in your sinuses?
