I also had a metallic taste in my mouth...turned me off coffee for a few days. Horrible taste!! I agree with taking it with water and then eating something quickly after to over the bitter taste.

This works pretty good, but if you take it, drink it down with juice (prefferably orange). This pill leave a gagging after taste!

If you take the pill (don't think just take with water and swallow fast)then eat (toast, something with flavor) you will be fine. I had to take 2 in 2 days and managed to choke them down without any metal taste. Just don't bite the pill because you will have that taste for a while.

The medication worked but I experienced severe stomach pain & vomitting because I did not listen when I was told to avoid alcoholic beverages. Strongly urge anyone who takes this medication, really to avoid alcoholic beverages.
