Do drugs affect taste?

I have recently started taking a low dose of Amitrypteline (40mg a day). I have noticed that some foods seem to taste different: Coffee is more bitter and orange juice tastes sharper. Is it the medication or my imagination?

It definitely doesn't feel like my imagination: coffee has started to taste much more bitter than before, and orange/fruit juice seems to have a much sharper, more acidic taste than I recall. Is the medication that I take for my pain rearranging my brain?
