Taste Buds Changing

Taste Buds Changing

HI all!

2 months ago my Dr. put me on Arava and Azulfidine and about a week and a half ago all food and drinks started to taste funny to even gross. Has anyone had this happen? I know the Azulfidine is a sulfa drug... not sure if it is one or the combination of the two that is causing this. I just know I do not like not being able to enjoy any food.
