So I went to the doctor and he prescribed a quadruple antibiotic therapy consisting of a proton pump inhibitor and 3 antibiotics. Ever since I started taking them (been a few days) I've been noticing that I have been salivating A LOT as if I was hungry, but the thing is I am not hungry. It also has the sick metal taste to it. Of the medications I take, the only side effect I have is the metallic taste in my mouth. Not sure if the taste is what makes me think I am oversalivating.
I need ways to either control this salivation or ways to get the taste out of my mouth. I'm visiting my doctor in a week, which is when the treatment is over, but I would like this torture to end.
