The taste of taking it I never notice a thing. When I have pouchitis, I take Flagyl along with Cipro because normally, my pouchitis can last up to 6 weeks after I begin the meds.
The taste buds for me are shot. I think that is what you are referring to. I feel that everything I taste feels like Rust or Charcoal and I cannot get that bad taste in my mouth to leave as everything tastes bad.
But the choice is would I rather put up with the pouchitis and not take the meds vs the discomfort of taste buds?
Its something you are going to have to deal with.
