Allergies

Sore throat and food taste bad

01/04/2008

Question:

I have been on Fluconazole 100 MG prescribed by my allery doctor. I got a rash on my body, sore throat and tongue. What ever food I eat, it taste real bad and my tongue I think has pumps on the side and back that hurt. Could this be caused from the Fluconazole? I have had this for 5 days now. Is there some thing I could take to remedy this problem.

Answer:

This medication can cause a rash and bad taste.  I would recommend you stop this medication immediately and follow-up with your doctor.
