My Dad - Dry Throat - Metallic Taste


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Wanted to check in to see if anyone has input on the metallic taste that my Dad has been having and a very dry throat. Thirsty a lot! He has been through all his chemo and radiation (the tumor in lung is gone) and is now going through PCI.

Any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Sorry your Dad is having these issues. I think the metallic taste is fairly common, although very annoying. I kept my husband tanked full of Gatorade and that seemed to help quinch the dry mouth and thirst.

I just wanted to let you know that I had and still have a metal taste in my mouth every morning and until about mid afternoon. And dry mouth, but think that is because I'm not drinking enough water or otherliquids. The doctor said the metal taste was probably from some of my medicines. Maybe check to see what medicines you Dad takes, and see if that is the reason. I found sucking on mints helps the metal taste.
