If you are on Tx , then its very common to have metallic taste. I am in week 15/24 of Tx and from the day one of my Tx  i am facing this metallic taste and especially it becomes worst when i use milk products having sugar in it. I think it is the Sx of Ribavirin. I have discussed this with my doc but no solution found.

Are you taking boceprevir?  My husband is worried that he's on placebo because he doesn't have the bad taste.

Who knows, the metallic taste could be caused by the placebo. I haven't started the BOC yet. But wouldn't worry about. Its the pcr results that count.... Best to you
