Last night I woke up choking like my sputum had "gone down the wrong hole" and had a coughing fit. When I got my breath back I had a horrific taste in my mouth that made me gip it was that bad & only sucking on a mint then brushing my teeth & tongue took the taste away. I have been taking an antibiotic called Clarithromycin for a chest infection which I've never taken before and have read in the "possible side effects" it can cause a change in sense of taste - just wondering if anyone else has experienced this? I'm at my GP's later today so I will let you know what he has to say
